    Had a wonderful time taking the family here. The prices were reasonable, they have a special deal for families. The most exciting exhibit is the outdoor "Moresburg" which is a recreation of several different eras of Irish Settlement in Grey county. The docents, dressed in the traditional garb of the era they represented offered insightful and informed anecdotes about daily living. My kids left feeling like they had a better understanding of where our own family came from, and that to me is priceless.

    Beautiful settings. Friendly staffs,. Lot's of Grey county tourist promotional materials. However, there were so few visitors, even during Summer Sunday afternoon.
