*We understand being on time to anything with a little one is just another added stress. If you're running a little behind, that's a-okay. You can just hop on the tour when you arrive!
We offer guided tours of the museum year round for groups and individuals. Our tours are conversational, informative and most importantly, fun! Please be sure to book ahead if you would like a guided tour, so that we can make sure we have a guide available!

Got the winter blues? We think the best cure is to get outside! During those snowy months, we offer snowshoeing on our walking trails! Snowshoe rental is included in the price of regular admission. Please ask at the front desk if you would like to borrow a pair.
Whether you choose to run, skip, hop or walk, our nature trails offer tranquility among native pollinator plants, wetland, butterflies, birds and even a singing frog to two. As you weave around our accessible paths, enjoy reading panels telling the stories of Perth County and Stratford pasts. There is no charge to use the nature trails, just enjoy!
