The whole museum is fascinating, in layout, their artifacts and the written material. It was easy to wander about to see and learn about the displays. Explanations were easy to follow and not too long. Unique, not a typical museum. We learned many new things not only about the canoes but about our history. Am absolutely amazing collection. Will return... More

Inside the doors of this building sits an amazing collection of historical canoes. The part the canoe played in the history of Canada is amazing. They are beautifully displayed with comolete accompanying information. They have a great gift shop with really unique gifts. Its located in an easily accessible spot in beautiful Peterborough. Loads of parking. Well worth the visit!

Living in a city where there are tourist attractions we tend to take them for granted and never explore them ourselves. This was true with the Canadian Canoe Museum. One Sunday afternoon my husband suggested that we go and see what is in there. I regret having waited so long to explore this wonderful exhibit. Canoes can be very interesting!!!... More

Well worth a visit, we took our granddaughter age 8. She enjoyed the scavenger hunt to locate object within the displays. Interesting for all ages.

Visited today. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and the exhibits were wonderful to see and read about. Not at all stuffy and museum like. The cards with the canoes had just about the right length of information so they were easy to read and we didn't have to spend ages reading.

We visited the Canoe Museum in August 2014. Well worth a visit as it was really interesting to learn about the history of canoes. Lots of hands on displays and had a fun time with our family. Would really recommend.
