We had low expectations for this museum and mostly went because it was close to our campground and we were driving by. It was actually quite interesting and there is more to see that you first think. There is a neat relocated fort that you can climb for several storeys and lots of historic info and old boating relics.

We were launching kayaks in the near by park - dropped in at the Museum - NOTHING to see or be excited about. A few pick nick tables if you wanted to bring your own lunch and kids play ground - NOTHING else. Out in the middle of nowhere.

We actually missed out on touring inside the museum. We only had time to check out the lightstation that was built in 1967 as a mariner's memorial.

A large collection of books, beautiful model ship, and lots of interesting paraphernalia related to local marine history. The wall paintings were impressive. A pleasant, knowledgeable attendant. Definitely worth a visit!

When out for a drive in Prince Edward County stop off at the Mariners Park Museum. It has a great display of local maritime items and local history about things both nautical & early settlement. It goes back to the United Empire Loyalists settling the county after the American war of independence. Did you know, if you can trace back... More

This museum is full of cool things from the lives of people who fished and farmed here and from the marine heritage of this unique part of Canada and the waters of Lake Ontario. It's small but you can get close up to some very interesting stuff. And it's fun outside with a replica early fort, boats and a lighthouse... More

When we found this little gem of a place, we had no idea just what a great source of history it was actually going to be. A lot of small town "museums" are nothing more than glorified antique shops but the Mariner's Museum held war time artifacts, racing memorabilia, treasures from a variety of sunken ships and history of prohibition...

This is a very interesting museum. It was my Dad, a former sailor on the Great Lakes, who was keen to go, but we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The museum is packed with all kinds of interesting treasures, and great stories from local history. Although we did not have children with us, I observed that the museum has set up... More
