Located in the Arthur J.E. Child building on the waterfront, the past comes alive through their exhibits, programming, and tours.

Founded in 1995, the museum tells the story of Gananoque’s varied history, from glaciers and muskies to pirates and picnickers. Discover the place where past meets present by visiting the interactive exhibits. Their permanent exhibit features the history of Gananoque and the 1000 Islands – highlighting such things as the geology, ecology, First Peoples, arrival of the Europeans, the area’s involvement in the war of 1812, and the Industry age of Gananoque. The museum regularly has a travelling exhibit featured on the first level and varies from year to year – previous exhibits have included Women in STEM, To What Degree? Canada in a Changing Climate, and the history of Hockey in Canada. Be sure to leave some time to relax on the waterfront veranda and browse the unique gift shop.
