While the exhibit isn’t large it is very informative and the guides are friendly and helpful. You get a real perspective of the history of the area.

This floating and boat-house museum is a must see if you love the wooden boats from the 20s to the 60s. From smaller runabouts to big old cabin cruisers moored at the dock this place has an impressive collection.

My wife and I visited here on 8/15/17. I'm 72 years old and grew up around some of these wooded craft. Amazing to see working boats that are that old. Then visit the museum to see old motors and other vintage boats.

This is a small but interesting museum. A tidy collection of original and restored watercarft. The collection also includes a collection of outboard and inboard motors. Staff were very friendly.

I am unsure how this classifies as a museum. Small amount of boats placed on the floor for display. No information and we had to hunt to find anyone working.

Fun hour poking around the 2 buildings we visited. Interesting chat with a volunteer who helped rebuild an antique boat on display. Another interesting chat with a very conscientious and knowledgeable young female volunteer. If in Gananoque I would definitely visit. Don't need a lot...More
