The museum is small but full of fun facts and historical information. What a great way to get a feel for the glorious steamship history. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and enjoyed the interactive exhibits. If you`re visiting Gravenhurst, please go. It`s a treasure.

Wasn't sure what to expect. Pleasantly surprised. Lived here in the 50's was reminded of historic significance and classic boats from that era.

The museum has a number of good video presentations, varied displays related to boating, and numerous smaller boats on display. Believe that museum would be good for families with children as well as adults.

If you have an hour to spare before or after your cruise on beautiful Lake Muskoka, take some time to visit this interesting spot. They have plenty of antique wooden boats to see and historic photographs and history of the area. The wooden boats are so charming. You just want to put on a long dress, hat and parasol and... More

If you like boats and history this is the place. It is located in the same parking lot as the Marriott Residence Inn in Gravenhurst. Great gift shop as well

History of Muskoka's boating past out of season so not too many attractions to take in although plenty of items to read about.

E xcellent displays of years gone by in the boating industry. Good historical accounts of resorts throughout the Muskoka area. Interactive displays. You could spend hours enjoying this museum, especially in milder months when the in-water boats are on display. Easy access for all ages.

Although I did not have the time to take a tour of this place, I just visited the lobby and heard what they had to offer. Seemed very interesting. Perhaps will visit them the next time.

We visited this museum while we waited to board the Segwun steam boat. The entrance is free if you buy a ticket for a tour around the lake Muskoka. The ladies working at the front are very friendly and give you a quick info session of what you will see in the museum. All the boats are in very good... More

Didn't have much time to visit the centre as it was closing shortly, but in the few minutes I was there for, I was mesmerized by the collection of antique canoes and power boats this centre has. There are various artifacts dating back to the 1900s... Also, there are activities and workshops which are held or the kids, so if... More
