This is an interesting place to explore. The Muskoka Steamship ticket includes visit to this centre. It has history of the boats associated with the Muskoka lake, as also boats which took part in various local and international races. A must visit.

We had a rushed visit because we had to catch the cruise but from what we saw this place was amazing. It has many wonderful classic boats. The building has some great rooms that are sample of what it was like to visit some of the many resorts in the area from the 1900s.
Well worth the visit.

Unique display of Muskoka history and vintage power boats still privately owned and operated on the lake. Well worth a visit.
