“Wonderful museum!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

We've been here several times - always enjoyable - we bring our guests from out of town. Our kids have been in their educational programs as well - making bannock, carving soapstone etc.. Years ago, I took my Brownie group there for a "sleepover" under the Voyageur canoe - great fun!

“Peterborough Canoes - Are Very Famous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

We loved it here...the museum features the world's largest collection of canoes, kayaks and paddled watercraft - it is a wonderful museum for the whole family - with at least 100 canoes and kayaks on display. Make sure you put this on your list of things to do in Peterborough, Ontario!

“Doesn't look like much from outside but great inside”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012

A fantastic history lesson of canoes with lots of great examples. Wasn't too impressed from the building outside but it is top notch inside.
