We liked the museum. A great way to display antique boats. Lots of good information in a hands on place. They have a day camp for kids, what a great way to get kids interested in boats.

We took a cruise on the Wenonah II Steamship so admission was complimentary. It is quite a modest-sized discovery centre but a nice haven for families. Displays are literally set up on two floors in one large room. Would recommend stopping if as it's complimentary.

When we decided to visit this place on this grumpy and rainy day, we totally didn't expect to see the Miss Canada IV, a gorgeous beauty built in 1948 which has a unique 3000 HP engine and can reach 200 mph! Awesome place!

A beautiful setting to see and learn about Muskoka lake boats, past and present. Activities for children, something for everyone. Highly recommended.
