“Take the time...”
Reviewed 19 September 2012

Collocated to Fort Ontario, this small niche’ museum tells the story of not only refugees, but also the warmth and understanding of the small town citizenry who personified the best of America. This, I believe, the main take away.

The displays do an adequate job of narrating the experience; there is a film (of course) that I found to be evocative lending a human face to the plight of the refugees.

A visit is worthwhile; allow about one hour.
