A great transformation has taken place. The Canadian Canoe Museum has been re-designed to better represent the story that our collection has to tell. Two hundred canoes from the Museum's vast collection will be displayed in different ways on both floors to show the role of this perfect vehicle in the story of Canada. Discover the enduring significance of the canoe to the people of Canada in North America's only canoe museum. With more than 600 canoes and kayaks and 1,000 related artifacts, the Canadian Canoe Museum's collection is the largest of its kind. Experience a dramatic waterfall upon entering, hear creation stories inside a traditional Mi'Kmaq wigwam, or try your hand building a birch bark canoe in the new Preserving Skills Gallery. Feel what it was like living as a voyageur during the Fur Trade era, plan a prospecting expedition from the Klondike gold rush days, and enjoy the cottaging lifestyles of the early 19th century. The canoe is the ultimate link to Canada's rich cultural heritage, connecting the people, the past and the unique Canadian landscape.
