Our two Grandchildren (7 & nearly 9) were sort of not another village museum! However when they got through doors they loved it. We have been to several of these sites such as Black creek, Upper Canada this is much smaller than Upper Canada but has a lot packed in. The kids and us enjoyed most the First Nation woman explaining the way of life of her people in times past and the significance of the branch and hide tepee we sat in. Schoolroom was near the top too they did the work on the board on their slates, the teacher rang the bell and sent them out to play they loved that. Perhaps she wanted to get rid of them! Just joking. The mill was fascinating but we were disappointed they had none of their milled flour for sale.Kids thought the mill boring but it was the end of a long hot day. It was a good weather day before school returned and we were surprised how few visitors there were considering what a great place it was to enjoy and learn of the history of this part of Canada. Good value BBQ food perfect except for the wasps.
