  • Absolutely incredible museum! It's clear that the owner cares deeply about maintaining an excellent collection of an assortment of exhibits. Laura is also an absolutely out-of-this-world tour guide! The exhibits may be fantastic but they're second to her enthusiasm and passion for natural history. You learn something new every time you walk in the place and go for a tour! Definitely check this place out!
  • Love this place. Took two kids age 8 and 5 and they loved the exhibits. So much to take in we marveled at the taxidermy animals for a very long time. The tour guides were great with the kids providing fun information on the exhibits and a few hands on items for the kids to touch. It's not a huge place but it's packed with some really amazing artifacts, animal exhibits, rocks, minerals...it's really quite an amazing collection from a private collector. The owners are amazing, funny, helpful and we're great with the little ones. They have a scavenger hunt for the kids to fill out, upon exit they can receive a reward. The gift shop is great, so much to look at and buy, from stones, gems, fossils, jewellery, shells, starfish etc. Great place to spend a few hours and the kids will learn a lot about nature.
  • I went with my niece and nephews ranging in age from 3 months to 9 years and they all loved it. Lots of items on exhibit ranging from local fossils to exotic animals and even dinosaur fossils. The gift shop is also quite extensive and reasonably priced. It is kind of hidden, but if you watch for the dinosaur crossing sign you shouldn't have a problem
  • What a wonderful museum to visit. The displays are all incredible. Our guide Laura was especially helpful, friendly and quite knowledgeable. The owners Alison and Jim are particularly delightful. Sarnia is very lucky to have such a place for everyone to enjoy.
  • It's a mixed between bones, animals and rypley's. Many things to watch and the best is the personalized attention. My daughter was looking some random stuff and the guide just jump with interesting facts and offer to see other more. Great place, for sure I'll visit it again.
