NOTL Museum has a diverse mix of exhibits rooted in local lore, nested in a period house with easy to follow galleries and a balcony space. Lots to learn about local and Ontario history.

We had no idea this existed. It is in a delightful building. It holds so much history and the exhibits are very educational
