Admission included with the purchase of a Muskoka Setamboat Cruise otherwise a fee. Knowledgeable volunteer tour guides. Lots of interesting marine and vacation history to take in. Lovely collection of wooden boats. Interactive area for children (a $4 fee applies). Well worth the visit.

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.
