  • Fun little stop for kids. Also great for rain days.
  • Very interesting museum located in a one room school house built in the 1800s. Also has the first homestead cabin in the area. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.
  • Such a great place to learn about local history. We love traveling to Tobermory to learn about new information about the past. Last time we visted the small museum they had a spinning and wood carving expo out front and my children learned the different arts, and so did I. This is a great place to stop in and find out about Ontario past.
  • Great museum that was originally the School
  • Nice little place. Brought back so many memories of my grandmothers house as a child. Staff was very informative and cost was by donation. Worth a stop
