    HORRIBLE!

    We took our kids there based on the reviews. It was small, quaint museum which was fine and the tour guide, Zach, was amazing with my kids. My kids were very interested in everything and had thousands of questions for him. He was very patient and answered each one of their questions.

    The problem with this experience is that the manager or owner is not very kid friendly. He came upstairs and told me that my kids were being loud and running. Yes, my kids were excited and would run to the next exhibit (which I was constantly telling...Read More

    Awesome place. The owner is very friendly and an interesting character. He is full of a lot of information and has a story about every piece on display. I definitely would recommend it for any age.

HORRIBLE!

We took our kids there based on the reviews. It was small, quaint museum which was fine and the tour guide, Zach, was amazing with my kids. My kids were very interested in everything and had thousands of questions for him. He was very patient and answered each one of their questions.

The problem with this experience is that the manager or owner is not very kid friendly. He came upstairs and told me that my kids were being loud and running. Yes, my kids were excited and would run to the next exhibit (which I was constantly telling them to walk) but the were not being boisterous by any means, I told him that yes, I was making sure they walked. As the manager walked away he told the tour guide "good luck". That was not called for.

We then proceeded to leave and I told my kids that we were not welcome here as they were being very rude to us. A lady (maybe the owner / managers wife) asked what the problem was and I told her that the other gentleman was being rude and what he had said. He then proceeded to come out of the back room to tell me that my kids were too young for this place and we should return in a few years. I told him that they were not and that they were constantly asking questions and thriving on the new knowledge they were getting. He told me that they were constantly running and that they were not learning anything.

I would never recommend this place to anyone. It is sad, as it is probably a good tourist attraction for downtown Sarnia. I will make sure that I do tell as many people as I can about the horrible, non-kid friendly environment it is. On the website it says Visit Us - For Kids...clearly they do not want kids there!
