Step back in time at the Muskoka Lakes Museum 


Closed for the Winter!

Thank you for a wonderful 2023 season! The Museum and the collection are now all tucked away for the Winter. We are busy planning for next year, but if you miss visiting us in person, we have Online Exhibits being updated weekly for you to explore. Have a happy and healthy Winter and we’ll see you when we open in May 2024!


Online Exhibits

We have looked through our collection and found some hidden treasures not on display. We are excited to share them with you.

Each month a new theme will be explored and relevant artifacts will be posted weekly until the Museum reopens in May 2024.
