“Great little place and extended walk!”

Arthur Child Heritage Museum
Ranked #11 of 39 things to do in Gananoque
Attraction details
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Love to go to the Gananoque shoreline, this is a nice little museum! There are other little shops to explore, and great ice cream, to eat on a nice walk. Usually lots of parking, and after you can take a nice scenic drive around the town to see the lovely architecture! Then travel to the Main Street to check out the lovely unique shops! A great place to spend the day, and if you can take it in drive the Parkway east of the town to see some of the Thousand Islands! A lovely way to spend time in the summer! A Must!

This is a small museum about the 1000 Islands region and its history. It provides a more complete understanding of the area and how it developed. I found it very interesting and an enjoyable way to become acquainted with the 1000 Islands. The shop has some nice Canadiana mementos available for purchase.

This is a nice place to spend the afternoon. The small museum is very interesting. There is also an art gallery, book store, several gift shops and an ice cream stand. Visit by car or boat.

I was pleased to find this new museum. So many small towns don't have a good record of their past. This museum also will be displaying artifacts from the old town museum that closed around 1990. The previous was a small museum with a great collection but not the space or finances to be able to take advantage of the artifacts. I will visit again to see how things progress. The history of this area offers endless possibilities.
