Archeaology & First Nations
We visited this museum one Saturday. It is part display museum - discussing the native tribes that lived nearby and explaining how they lived, and outside, it is partly a reconstructed native town with a palisade and longhouse. I had no idea that the natives built walled cities - always thought that was a technique that the Europeans only used.
The museum is associated with the University of Western Ontario, and is on the site of the Lawson Prehistoric Iroquoian Village. They could be digging on site at any time, and you can read as to what they have found in the area close to the museum. Over the centuries, the natives changed the way they lived - becoming farmers at some time, and in the fourteenth century, they actually conducted mass burials where bones of the dead were placed in an ossuary - again interesting stuff - I never connected ossuaries with native settlements.
While we visited, they had demonstrations of native culture - dancing, etc. You can see some of it in the second and third pictures.
In 2008, the adult fee was $4 or $10 for a family.
