For model ship enthusiasts this is the centre! Bert Cunningham, owner, curator, must be one of the most knowledgeable ship collectors anywhere. Conversation with this gentleman is honest, forthright and solid knowledge about historic watercraft. Plans must be original - no kits! My husband is a historic model ship builder and he was armed with bits and pieces in production,... More

Our family of three adults visited this excellent museum on our trip to Montreal from The Thousand Islands. We arrived just at five o'clock but the owner was kind enough to allow us in to see the museum . The workmanship of the model ships was wonderful. We also enjoyed reading several newspaper articles about the displays and the museum.... More

A few weeks ago, on our way back from Toronto, we say the blue tourist sign for Model Ship Museum on the 401 and exited at Iroquois to take a closer look. It is located in the main building of a camping/cabin resort next to the St Lawrence River. We did not know what to expect as we walked in.... More

Well lit and tastefully arranged the museum was a pleasure to tour. Histories and interesting details about the ships are available to read and on the day we toured we enjoyed the added... More

Since I am quite interested in naval warfare, I could not pass up the chance to visit this museum after having passed a sign on Highway 401 on the way to Montreal from Toronto. The museum is located a five minute drive away from the highway and there is adequate signage to guide you there. The museum is located on... More

My Wife, our two daughters and I stayed here in a campsite 07/22/13-0723/13. I stayed here several times as a child with my family and it was nice to return with two of our children. The campsites are dry camping with no hook ups but they are well suited for only a couple day stay. The bathroom showers are quarter... More

Very much enjoyed our stay - lovely grounds and cottages in good shape, seemingly in the process of being updated, too. Great views across the St. Lawrence and most of all friendly and accommodating hosts.
