Very interesting and unique museum with a strong focus on Indigenous Canadian history and early Canadian history. Exhibits were very informative and there was lots to do for kids/interactive exhibits and crafts. Staff were very friendly and there is a gift shop.
It's so Canadian!!! A beautifully put together history of the canoe and kayak in contributing to the shaping and forming of our mythology. I felt as if I was in a wing of the museum of civilization in Gatineau. Thanks to all the wonderful volunteers this is a worthy trip
