  • Always a fantastic experience. The addition of a tots area makes it a great time for all ages. Lots of room to explore. Plenty for toddlers and young children. And of course the wooden boat museum and steamship discovery area. A perfect addition to any of the Muskoka Steamships cruises next door
  • Ticket booth attendant, exhibit floor volunteer, Kids Zone staff, everyone was extremely friendly. The Kids Zone is a must visit - various STEM inspired learn-through-play activities there, as well as Lego, toys, dress up, and books. Again the staff/volunteers in Kids Zone are a lot of help.
