On the shore of the St. Lawrence River, next to the Gananoque Boat Line docks, is the Arthur Child Heritage Museum. The Heritage Museum is located on the site of the former main railway station of The Thousand Islands Railway, which was destroyed by fire in 1990.

Lots to see. Friendly staff. Located in the charming town of Gananoque. Close to the docks, restaurants, and gift shops.
