  • Great place. We had a very nice and educational tour there. Girl who led the tour was amazing, very knowledgeable and helpful. Would be very nice if the museum will have extended hours and work Sundays. Highly recommend.
  • Lots of interesting facts to learn as you walk through this fully air conditioned old house. The tour guide was generally on point but sometimes not needed or wanted. Large parking lot located behind the house.
  • Great place to go! and to learn about history and a lot more ! Thank you sir frederick banting for information on diabetes and for coming up with insulin! 😊 oh and my 7 year old loved it.
