We went on a Tuesday with 2 kids under age 4 and it was perfect. We had a light stroller for our littlest child and could access most areas. Some buildings required stairs but there were a lot with ramps that we could still access. Our children loved the farm area the most as they could pet the chickens and goats. It was their and my first time holding a chicken which was fun. Although they didn't comprehend much of the history aspect, my husband and I found it all very interesting.

My family brought me here this past week on my yearly visit to Thunder Bay. I loved every second of this conservatory. With the weather being so awful it was calming and refreshing to view such beauty! I almost forgot I was inside. Staff was very friendly- highly recommend!

It is located 6 or 7 miles South of town, but it is definitely worth a visit. The access is off Gillespie Road and they have ample parking. It is basically a replica heritage town built in a field alongside the highway. All building are spotlessly clean and well maintained. While guided tours are available, we elected to just stroll through the site. Most enjoyable and informative. Definitely worth a visit.
