We are committed to keeping you healthy and safe, but we cannot guarantee you won’t be exposed to COVID-19. We rely on you to protect yourself too: 

• Wear a mask

Founded in 1995, our museum tells the story of Gananoque's varied history, from glaciers and muskies to pirates and picnickers. Discover the place where past meets present by visiting our interactive exhibits, relaxing on our waterfront veranda and browsing our unique gift shop.

​Located in the Arthur J.E. Child building on the waterfront, we bring the past alive through our exhibits, programming, and tours. 

Our admission is by donation. Contact us to arrange a guided tour for your group. Your generous support funds exhibits, programs, and operations.
