This place is just excellent. The curator is very knowledgable and there are lots of authentic items to see. Wonderful to have this resource right in our neighbourhood for residents and tourists alike.
We travel a lot and visit little museums all over Ontario and Canada. This museum surpasses them all! Nice collection of historical artifacts, great shows on doll-making, butter churning and apple cider making during Thanksgiving weekend. Highly recommend! 5 star!
We came to see and walk the area. Museum is located just in the heart of Port Carling. Entrance fees are $2.50 The museum is small, but it has a lot of old technologies and items people where using before the age of technology.

My husband and I were drawn to the museum when we saw the log cabin from a distance. Set in a beautiful park and a gorgeous area, we decided to head on in as those who worked there were quite friendly and since we had my husband's mom with us and her dog, they said we could take turns going... 更多

good experience-Muskoka history is fascinating. Everyone who loves Muskoka will appreciate what they have collected. Some interesting old boat motors and boat history, old resort info...
Be sure to take a walk around the little island that the museum sits on. It's quite pretty. And stop to watch the locks operate. If you're lucky you will see the road lift bridge raised for a large boat or better yet take a cruise on one of these boats.
