Museums in Muskoka

Muskoka’s vibrant history is well documented and many museums have developed in celebration of the region’s rich cultural and social heritage. Little wonder: Muskoka’s history encompasses peoples from around the globe. From the early British settlers responsible for starting the resort industry in the 19th Century, to their American guests, to the Norwegians who used Muskoka Airport as a training base during the Second World War, Muskoka continues to welcome visitors from far and wide.

Today, nine museums and historic sites in Muskoka offer exciting educational family adventures dedicated to everything from transportation (trains, planes, antique boats and steamships) to famous people, real and imagined (famed Canadian doctor Norman Bethune was born in Gravenhurst, and Anne of Green Gables creator, Lucy Maud Montgomery, used to cottage in Bala).

Each of Muskoka’s major towns has something unique to offer in terms of history. Huntsville, along with its bustling main street and its many entertainment opportunities, has the delightful Muskoka Heritage Place with its pioneer exhibits; Gravenhurst has its magical steamships; and Bracebridge has its antique, arts and collectable stores.
