In accordance with Ontario's recent COVID-19 shutdown announcement, as of 3 April 2021, the museum will be temporarily closed to the public until further notice. We will continue communicating via social media and hope to see everyone in person again soon!


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.
