“A hidden gem.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

The museum sits by the lake and the locks. A nice place to visit or go attend their Wednesday Teas. It is full of interesting artifacts as well as an art gallery.

“The things those settlers did in the winter.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013

A very interesting look at life in the 'frontier' thru the eyes of a family home. Some of the items inside from the owners medical/dental practice are eerie. The museum is laid out beautifully and kept very clean. Be sure to have a guide explain some of the items and relay the anecdotes of the family and area history. I was absolutely dumbfounded to see that a huge piece of lace/tatwork was intricately handmaid with the girls and womens hair! I understand this was commonplace back then, but was just a little creepy to me. A great change of gears from the beach, which is only 100 yds away.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

It gives a nice overview of what life was like here in the early days. Do try to visit on a day when they hold their Afternoon Teas - delightful.

“Fun Little Museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Went here on Santa Day in Fenelon Falls. Offering a tour of the museum, crafts for the kids, even Yo-Yo making! Showing how the original settlers used to live. I found it very interesting and quite educational. A good place to check out on a rainy afternoon.

“nice but under construction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

it is a nice slice of life view of Fenelon Falls in the 1800's - 1900's - but was under construction so some parts were off limits or not finished - very nice staff - will try to visit again when in town
