Birthday Parties

Celebrate like a pioneer with hands-on, themed parties for children aged 5 to 12.

Celebrate in a beautiful Muskoka setting!

Birthday parties at the Museum can accommodate groups of five or more children from ages 5 to 12. Parties are two hours long and include a guided tour of the Museum. Parties are available from Victoria Day to Labour Day.

Each party is custom-designed around the children’s ages and activities they would like to participating in. The museum is open to special requests.

Time is set aside to open presents and eat cake. Please note: the Museum does not provide food, cake, gifts or treat bags but can offer suggestions of local providers.

Cost: $10 per child. Bookings must be received in advance. For more information contact the museum at 705-765-5367 or


The museum has space and staff to accommodate a maximum of 60 children. 

There are 12 large, sturdy picnic tables on the island and washrooms on the island, as well as inside the museum. The large and small Port Carling locks are close by and operate throughout the day. There are a number of scavenger hunt activities designed to allow children to independently tour the museum. In the case of inclement weather, the museum can accommodate up to 30 people inside for lunch.
