Fascinating piece of Canadian history! Midland's main street runs down to the docks and is populated with buildings that date back over 100 years. If you are a history buff or a treasure hunter like me check out the murals. They tell a tale of times gone by and are some of our art treasures.

They have a souvenir shop and ice restaurant on site and there are Catholic Masses every day all summer long. AS great site to bring the family to see and a good education for the children.

The realism and depth in every image is amazing. The murals are all related to the surrounding area and business of yesterday. We watched the artist create his works for several years before he passed away. No matter how much he was involved, he would always stop working to talk with people about his works. You can tell the works... More

These murals add a wonderful flair to Midland's downtown. Depicting subjects such as the railroad, lighthouses, ships, logging, and even a relaxing summer day along the waterfront. I could describe them in more detail but honestly just go see them for yourself, you won't be disappointed. There are over 30 murals to discover mainly around downtown King Street. The entire...

Located throughout the picturesque town of Midland Ontario are the amazing painted murals that any art lover will appreciate. They are located on buildings in the downtown area and are true works of art. My favorite and a must see is the one located on the Meat Shop!! A glimpse of years gone by, I could stare at that mural... More

This is a testament to one man's vision and determination. It will make an impression to many a visitor. The legacy left by this artist is an example of long lost skills.

Most murals are well done,a couple need to be touched up when viewing them up close, keep your eyes open as some are hidden right in front of you. Go to the travel kiosk by the marina for a booklet on the murals.

There are some beautiful murals on the sides of buildings, depicting the area history. Take some time to look at them. The artist(s) did a great job.
