  • Great day for family and alone. Weekdays are nice as it's not so busy, you can ask lost of questions. Kids love seeing the animals. The Jubilee park is great for a picnic. Can be a little buggy however.
  • Beautiful modern building with fascinating exhibits. If you are a KW local it is a must-see. The temperary exhibit on changing Kitchener's name from Berlin is cool!
  • Very interesting museum which also focus on telling story of the KW area, and always has activities for families.
  • Went to the Great War event and it was neat walking around the museum seeing people wearing uniforms and clothing from that time period. Definitely want to go back and see more exhibits
  • There are some really interesting temporary exhibits featured here. Walking around the village is also always a treat and very informative. Worth a visit if you're from the area or have connections there.
