Visiting Nancy island is free of charge but there's box for donations. There' s not really much to see, you can climb to light house replica but you can't go out on the top and windows are so dirty you don't see outside.
Nancy island historic site and museum is a great place to go in Wasaga Beach on those non beach days with your family .
Staff are happy and friendly. Not a huge museum and site but enough to spend an hour or two.
Nancy Island is a lovely little historic site found right in the heart of Wasaga (a few minutes walk from the beach!). There is not set admission fee to visit the island, but donations are much appreciated. The staff here were wonderful, dressed in the...More
A very informative visit with artifacts and names with dates to events related to the war of 1812. Men who fought in a battle that occurred on the ground upon which the museum stands. Admission is by donation.
On a recent trip to Wasaga Beach with my family we stopped in at Nancy Island Historic Site, and what a treat it was! We were over-impressed with our hosts, the cleanliness of the site and all the options available. We wouldn't hesitate to come...More
My husband and I live in Wasaga Beach but had never been to Nancy Island before. So on what had to be the hottest day in July 2016 we decided to see what it was all about. We learned so much by just walking around...More
Stopped in because we needed a break from the beach, and it is literally right beside it. Great if you have had a little to much sun and need a cool informative break. The exhibit is large and made up of some cannons and anchors...More

I had been to Wasaga Beach a few years ago but had not visited that site. It is certainly worth the visit if you are in the area. Most people seem to only see Wasaga Beach as a beach resort area. By visiting this historic site, right in the center of Wasaga Beach, I discovered its historic value and learned about events that happened right here during the War of 1812 between Canada and the "newborn" USA - specifically here, a battle between American schooners and a British ship, whose remains are in the museum. About an hour is sufficient for the visit if you dont watch the film. There are dressed-up historical characters in the museum to help you understand the site and its events of the 19th century. The park has its own website where you will get more details.
