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.
