Lovely museum worthy of an afternoon exploration. A little out of the way, parking might be iffy when University is in session.

We enjoyed this museum and learned a lot. It is very interactive. There are voice clips and music to listen to, videos to watch and, of course, many objects to see and read about. Everything is in both French and English. Well done!
