  • Nice small museum, easily rolled around in under an hour. Good wheelchair access. Fun for young and old. Interesting to see they have an Oak Island display of things that have been dug up.  more »

  • Place was small but informative. Lots of varied exhibits and more live animals than one would think would be in a museum. Their exhibit on the local indigenous people is probably the most comprehensive of any I've seen, especially about the mic mac people. Great place to spend an hour or two but don't go in expecting to spend the whole day there. Admission is also very reasonable
  • What a brilliantly curated place! While they don't have as much content as other museums I've been to, everything they do have is perfectly presented. The exhibits are a real credit to the staff and volunteers; nicely done!
  • The museum is best if you are visiting for a special exhibit or with a group. We took our 2 year old and our 6 year old niece. They liked the interactive parts and some of the permanent displays. My only complaint was that it seemed small. I don't think there would be much to see on a 2nd visit until some exhibits change.
  • Excellent museum, you are greyed by gus the 100 year o?d turtle and continue with some great exibits. Lots of themes throughout the year !
  • A great place to take your kids. lots of fun stuff to see. A great rainy day activity.
