Muskoka Marine Museum 
Huntsville, Ontario


Muskoka Marine Museum is a registered Canadian charitable (not for profit) organization, founded in 1996. All funds generated from each of the Museum's programs go towards restoring and expanding the Museum's own collection, and furthering its objectives.

Muskoka Marine Museum objects:

  • To restore, preserve, maintain, demonstrate and display to the public, antique and classic boats, artifacts and memorabilia;
  • To promote public interest in the marine heritage of the District Municipality of Muskoka generally and the Town of Huntsville and the Township of Lake of Bays in particular; and
  • For the objects aforesaid, to establish and maintain a public museum.

We continue to work towards building a display of antique and classic boats primarily targeting existing collectors and wood boat enthusiasts. Our collection ranges from spare parts and grey ‘project’ hulls to museum quality launches built by North America’s most famous names, with emphasis on those built here in the Muskoka district of Ontario, which was Canada’s centre of wood boat building. The Museum is currently co-operating with the Gravenhurst Museum in the development of their site and is active in the waterfront re-development in Huntsville.

We would certainly give you a very warm welcome if you would like to visit our private museum at the present time to discuss:

  • Having the Museum’s professional Workshop undertake work on your boat;
  • Purchasing a fine antique or classic wood boat;
  • Donating your boat to the Museum.

You’ll find Muskoka Marine Museum right in the heart of Ontario’s cottage country.
