Attraction details
Owner description: We are located in Tower Hill Park at the base of Parry Sound's 96-foot Look-Out tower overlooking Beautiful Georgian Bay. The Museum features a changing calendar of exhibits in three galleries. Exhibits feature an extensive collection of local artifacts connected to the history of the Parry Sound District. Themes include Natural and Cultural history trapping, First Nations, nautical shipping, Logging, Agriculture and Contagion. Fine arts and special exhibits are offered throughout the year in our two temporary galleries. We offer family rates and special family events throughout the year. We have plenty of picnic tables and one of the best views in town, come spend the day with us.

I usually climb the tower when I get to Parry Sound and after a ten hour drive, it's a welcome opportunity to stretch your legs.

If you want more than just a museum, this is it. Great scenery and you have to try the climb up the big look out tower, bring the camera!

If the weather is good, it is worth the trek up the tower on the hill. You can literally see all of Parry Sound, and it is beautiful.
