Join in our guided tours
Bring your children, grandchildren or students on a guided tour at our heritage museum. Our staff will take them on a journey through time presenting our Canadian heritage. Our displays demonstrate how our ancestors lived, worked and survived in this region and by chance, the children may meet the majestic buffalo, Napoleon.
Group tours are available upon
request both in season and off season.
