“Great Canoes, Kayaks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

This was a well laid out museum, with several exhibits that said "touch me", and great descriptions of the object. Very near the entrance, you could fish!..There was a display of paddle making, near the area of the instructions for constructing a canoe. The gift shop was reasonably priced, and sold Canadian crafts.

“A wonderful display of the history of water travel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

The way they have the canoes and other watercraft displayed is perfect. If you follow the recommended viewing sequence you see the history of the canoe build and build from very basic beginnings to current canoe technology. The atmosphere is wonderful and the staff are amazing. We were there for almost 3 hours and still needed more time because we wanted to read and view everything.
