The museum is very complete and it shows both sides of immigration in Canada - how it has helped people, without dismissing that it is not easy for everyone. As an immigrant in Canada, I was very moved by it. Highly recommended.

Very interesting. Well laid out and easy access. Informative and knowledgeable guide ( Bill). Movie was very good. No refreshments (Cafe) available but lots of places nearby.

Good visit. We did the visit with the tour guides.
