The Canadian Canoe Museum is North America's only canoe museum. With 580 canoes and kayaks and 1,000 related artifacts, The Canadian Canoe Museum's collection is the largest of its kind.

Our exhibits explore how the canoe defines the Canadian character and spirit. Experience a dramatic waterfall upon entering or hear creation stories inside a traditional Mi'kmaq wigwam. Feel what it was like living as a voyageur during the Fur Trade era, and enjoy the cottaging lifestyles of the early 20th century.
The canoe is the ultimate link to Canada's rich cultural heritage, connecting the people, the
past and the unique Canadian landscape. Come to the Museum and discover the enduring significance of the canoe to the people of Canada.
