There is a lot of good historical facts, nicely presented in this place. It's worth a visit. But try to go during a promotion or Doors Open because at regular times it is overpriced.

Lots to see and do. Hands on stuff for the children. Some of the old boats were spectacular. Staff on hand to talk you through the displays.

If you have time, visit the museum and ask questions to the staff. (Tip: you will save half of the price if you take your Steamship tour stub). It is important to keep a museum like this one running because it is a part of the history of steamship and historic boats.

very good exhibition of everything about Gravenhurst which has been declared the 'Gateway to Muskoka region, starting with the steamships and resorts located around the three lakes, Muskoka, Rosseau and Joseph. This centre has tried to cover and show everything that it can lay hands on the artifacts from the olden days to the details of each and every resort located along with its history. needless to say it is a must see site in Gravenhurst.
