  • I love visiting museums and Patterson Museum was a must see for me!! I had a really nice walk through was on another mission will pass through soon again!

  • John Holland's first functional submarine ... Curtis-Wright (like Wilbur & Orville) and the birth of aviation ... Hamilton! ... the indigenous peoples ... Hinchcliffe Stadium ...
