  • A lot of our past is in that building. It's our Canadian Heritage
  • I visited this afternoon and to my surprise it was such a great museum. The location is a bit far away so I did not expect much. It however was very informative and touching as well. Covers all immigration eras and flows from different countries. It has interactive elements which is nice for older kids and teens. I definitely learned new things, and since immigration shapes the history of a country such as Canada, it is important and interesting to learn more! It is a clean museum, staff is friendly and today it was very quiet as well.
