I have been there many times. It has a rich First Nations history but I'm not sure if it's open anymore. It closed down a few years ago. If it is open again, it's a great place to see First Nations history.

Great place to visit history and loved the mound houses. The artifacts found in the area were many and interesting. Displayed in an easy to see fashion, this one is worth your time to visit.

This attraction has been closed for over 2 years. It should be removed from your lists. There is a "vitual tour" on the Simon Fraser University website.

Took a group of young studens (grade 3) here a while ago. Very interesting, and hands on. I learned a lot about the first people in the area as well.

It doesn't look like much, but don't miss it. The day my wife and I went they had students lead the tour. Learn the history and see the artifacts of the local native bands.
