The Canadian Canoe Museum is a unique national heritage centre that explores the canoe’s enduring significance to the peoples of Canada.

Experience the world’s largest collection of canoes, kayaks and paddled watercraft and learn how the canoe has defined the Canadian character and spirit. Spanning the country from coast to coast, the museum’s outstanding artifacts will let you “See Canada by Canoe!”

We’re an engaging, family-friendly museum with more than 100 canoes and kayaks on display. Visitors will enjoy interactive, hands-on galleries, a scavenger hunt, model canoe building and puppet theatre for children.

Our museum store offers a wide range of canoe-themed clothing, books, artwork, media and gifts. We offer free parking, and we’re accessible. You can sign up for classes, hands-on workshops, camps, guided tours and membership. Facility rentals for weddings, conferences, meetings and dinners are available.

We are proud to teach skill levels laid out by the Ontario Recreational Canoeing & Kayaking Association (ORCKA). Our ORCKA-certified instructors are knowledgeable, patient, and keen to help you make the most out of your time on the water. Our adult canoeing programs are suitable for anyone over the age of 18 looking to learn the basics of canoeing or build skills for your next on-water adventure.
