  • Amazing collection of minerals, fossils, precious gems, coral, insects, and taxidermy. Definitely worth a visit. They had a few items that are in top 3 "biggest in Canada/world" category, including a stunning cut topaz. I love my minerals and fossils so it was wonderful for me. My daughter just turned 3 and she really enjoyed it. Especially the dark room where you press a button and it lights up the florescent rocks. Some of the display cases are a bit too high for her to see into, but I was able to just lift her up for those. I found it was a good place to practice "museum etiquette" like walking, talking quiet, and not touching. I also had my 3 month old son (in a carrier) and he was fine. Get the tour (free with admission) from the super friendly staff to learn more about the collection. Talk to the owners on the way in or out for some colourful stories.
  • Humble and unpretentious. Well - appointed with local and international natural artifacts. Gift shop had a lot of variety, staff was very friendly.
  • Given its small size, this is a great little museum with a lot of knowledgeable staff willing to take time to explain an exhibit or just converse with you if that's what you want. The only thing this museum leaves you wanting is more.
  • Awesome place with an awesome staff. A must see for visitors and locals alike!
  • One of my favorite places to be. And as for the owners, Jim and Allison, two of the most amazing people I've ever met. Can't wait to go back.
