This is an excellent attraction for all ages, extremely knowledgable and friendly staff, well maintained exhibits that gave you a real feel for the era. The gardens are lovely and we enjoyed a very nice idea cream that was priced competitively to all other attractions we have visited. Highlights for our family were the carousel (a small charge but well worth it), the school (the staff member in here was brilliant and we enjoyed his singing of the British National Anthem).

We visited this museum because we'd heard it had an interesting exhibit on Japanese Canadian internment during WWII. The exhibit is actually the hallways & walls of the upstairs offices of the Nikkei Place, a Cultural Centre for Japanese Canadians, where there are classes, social and cultural events ranging from films, art exhibits and cooking classes to sports, dancing...The exhibit, while small, was very interesting and the result of donated photographs, information, books and histories.

I visited the Swangard Stadium for the recent Canada Day festival, including the evening fireworks display. As a venue, the large concrete stand provided plenty of seats for spectators. I noted that that the large roof, overhang would make it difficult to watch some of the fireworks, so I had to sit lower in the stands for a much better view. If you are attending an event that involves looking up, you may want to get lower seats.
