  • Passes were a gift from Forest Motel & Woodland Resort. Don't know that we would have found the place without their encouragement!  more »

  • Went there for the Narnia exposition. It was super cool! I love the way we had to go in the closet to get in the exposition. Really nice setting! :)
  • Good look at the local history. The new management in the last few years has done a great job rotating interesting exhibits and teaming with the Festival to have fun displays.
  • Great little museum, local history and exhibits from the ROM and AGC!
  • Fairly quiet (in October) little museum that featured a collection of quilts depicting imagery of life in Canada, and further afield on the main floor. In a separate room were displays on the history of newspaper printing in the region, and my favourite, of Stratford's firefighting history. Check out the binder which details and exhaustive list of all fire events from the town. Upstairs, are a selection of costumes and artifacts from plays, including many from Narnia. There is some WWI history here, too. There is a small gift shop.
  • Great experience, brought back lots of memories, very authentic, visiting from Calgary

Where to stay in Stratford

Whether you stay north or south of the Avon River, you'll be within walking distance of the city's top attractions. Stay in the historic center, just near Veterans Drive Parkland, if you're happy to pay a bit more for a charming, friendly guesthouse or inn housed in a period building. Reserve well in advance if visiting between May and September, as the warmer months bring an influx of tourists to the small city.
