COVID-19 Shutdown

As of 12:01am December 26th, our museum will be closed to the public until further notice.

  • As this is due to a province wide shutdown, we are unsure of when we will be reopening. We thank you for your patience.

  • Phone and email messages will be checked periodically throughout the shutdown.

  • While you wait, please visit winter window exhibit, which can be viewed from outside the museum! Find details here.


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.
