The Canadian Canoe Museum

The Canadian Canoe Museum

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 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 on site for classes, workshops, camps and membership. Facility rentals are available.
