This is a must if you are a wildlife enthusiast or educational trip for your kids. They have a really great (and different than the norm) b day package for kids that involves fishing, air gun target shooting, and archery target shooting as well as a movie theatre.

I have been to the Centre many times and always enjoy it with my grandchildren. The exhibits are well put together and some are interactive with sounds of the animals. Lots of information for the animals is available too. The movie theater shows incredible films on nature! The collection of fishing articles is impressive. The children's play area is fun.... More

Rates above excellent 10 stars. Part museum, part lecture, part video, part Ontario wildlife education, part archery range, part pellet gun range, part supervised live fishing. If you visit only one place in Peterboro this is it..

I wouldn't go out of my way to come see this because it's very small but we were in the area and it was fun. We picnicked outside at a table which was lovely and my kids (10 & 12) really enjoyed the table of pelts (they were labelled so you could compare animals). Look closely in the kids section... More

This centre asks for donations as your entry fee. There is no A/C and the day we were there, it was hot!!! There is a nice fish tank filled with native species, and if you time it right, you can watch the fish feeding. They have some good habitat displays, lots of information about introduced species (i.e. zebra mussels etc.)... More
