“Absolute Must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

The only place in the world to view the history of canoeing. The exhibits are very interesting for all ages, and some sections have informative videos. Many areas of interest, including a puppet theatre and a fishing canoe for the kids to 'catch the big one', a 'camping with melmac display, small library with adirondack chair seating. Lovely gift shop. Highly recommended.

“Very Deep Canoe Knowledge”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

This is a good museum to visit if you are too much into "Canoe". They have the whole history of canoeing captured nicely in the museum. You can spend an hour or two depending on how much you want to learn. There seems to be workshop available. We visited on a Sunday. So, it was closed.
