  • Great private museum ever
  • We had the BEST time here. Respecting social distancing measures, we wore masks/sanitized our hands, and all the doors remained open for adequate air flow. One of the owners gave us a private tour which lasted over an hour, and because he had restored the items himself, we got demonstrations of many of the items on display - an experience you'd never get in a larger city museum. The gift shop featured many items that the owners made themselves like wool socks made with an antique sock loom, of which we bought several. Highly recommend a visit.
  • Wonderful little place filled with so many antiques, some of the antiques there have been used in tv shows and movies. Definitely worth visiting.
  • We lived in and around the area for many years and just discovered this private museum. What a great place to visit and spend an hour or so. The tour was very personalized and extremely knowledgeable and most everything is restored and in working order from the early automobiles, steam engines, music players and so much more.This museum is by far among the best of the Kawartha jewels. We will do this again as there is almost too much to take everything in during one visit. Thanks for making this a day to remember.
  • What a real treasure this is - a fabulous museum!!! Antique cars, gas pumps, steam engines of all sizes and shapes, music boxes, cash registers and many more historical artifacts, almost everyone restored and in operating condition. Richard Bennett is the curator and he is one entertaining individual, who has an intimate knowledge of his historical machinery. He has intriguing stories, which he graciously shares. Our group of six was captivated with the artifacts and the stories. This is a national treasurer that should be enjoyed by the local community.
