A smaller museum. Interesting place with room dedicated to the early lumbering industry, snowmobiles, local car dealers, etc.

I called a few days in advance to make sure they were open during the winter hours. When I arrived I basically got a tour and really good conversation about the history of the area. Staff was extremely friendly!

Finally had the chance to visit this museum and found it interesting. A bit eclectic in its collection but any one with an interest in local history will enjoy a visit here. Don't forget to visit the other building for a glimpse into the past.

I have taken my kids twice and we have enjoyed it both time. The real highlight each time was the blacksmith - he's very kind to the kids and knows a lot of local history and lore.

This is where you learn about Haliburton's history. Simple but informative displays. It's a labour of love for those that continue to promote it and work hard to make it worth the visit. numerous events through the year, spring maple syroping being one of the...More
