Fodor's Review

This thought-provoking mix of displays, artifacts, and audiovisual materials portrays the history of the area from the Stone Age to the 1869 gold rush in the Strath of Kildonan. There's a geology exhibit in the garden and a tour of the Kildonan gold rush site. The complex also includes a café and an art gallery that often hosts visiting artists and changing exhibitions.
