  • Fantastic pieces of black canadian history. Definitely a must to visit and experience. The host Carolynn, was very welcoming and we plan on returning, in Hope's that the collection will keep growing!
  • What a hidden gem. Loved the themed rooms with period piece music playing. We danced in each room. But our absolute favourite was the gorgeous Underground Railroad hand embroidered map of North America. It’s stunning. While taking in its beauty and signicance, Sheffield’s very friendly museum guides taught us how to decode the Afghan quilt squares and flags that were used to communicate between those escaping to freedom and the safe houses they moved between. It was fascinating. I love it when things are hiding in plain sight...so the sleuth in me was delighted.
