At the very top of our wish list is our own canoe. Adam found and added this one to the list. We weren’t sure what to expect, but it was super awesome, we loved it. Really interesting museum, with lots of great exhibits. My favourite was the entire exhibit dedicated to old school courting, romance and canoeing; so cute. There were also lots of hands on areas, and activities for kids. We got in some embarrassing parent practice in at the Canadian animal puppet show.
Details: The Canadian Canoe Museum is in Peterborough, about an hour and a half outside of Toronto. Hours and location can be found here. They also have a ton of workshops, tours and are free on Thursday nights. We might be coming back in 2015 for a workshop, we were really impressed!
