Childhood memories with family discovery
I have had the pleasure of growing up in Quebec, and able to visit Atlantic Canada, Ontario, and later life Manitoba. My goal with this list is to highlight the places Ive been, and others I wish to visit especially with my own children. This country is so large and vast, and has incredible history, geography, and people. To be able to explore meet, and discovery new things about this country should be everyones goals. From wonderful Anne of Green Gables to Jasper National park, there is no shortage of interesting places. While many people only focus on going East to West we have a beautiful north to discover, and the historic and natural places in our Territories are worth the look.
Our museum is housed in a former Canadian Northern Railway station built in 1912.
