First time I have been back yo this place in years. It was a white elephant when it was built and seems to be about the same now. Only redeeming quality is that it is free for 2016 instead of the posted $5 admission fee. Not much there, a few boat models and some sort of fashion display.
So much to see and its in its off season. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. It is there off season but you don't feel unwelcome. They are always making changes to bring more interest to Gananoque. My grandchildren love the tower and the theatre. My sister in law enjoyed the History and it brought back many fond memories... 更多
This is a very well-done small town museum with an impressive amount of information relating to the War of 1812, the early manufacturing history of Gananoque, and the local Thousand Island cottaging and fishing activities. They have a small gift shop with quality items.
This is not a large museum, but a wide variety of exhibits cover the history of the 1000 Islands area rather well, with special emphasis on the golden age of the millionaires who built their massive "cottages" on the islands.

Admission is free but visitors... 更多

Beautiful replicas of beautiful sailing ships, etc. The battles of the area are well represented along with the dress of the day and time.... 更多
We enjoyed our stroll back in time when we visited the Heritage Museum. It has many interesting pieces of history, as well as information about some wildlife. There are two floors plus an upper floor where you can "take the wheel" of a boat. Quite interesting and fun. The only cost is a donation that can be made at the... 更多
