My daughters and I popped in on a wednesday around lunch to check out the museum. We were the only ones there so we paid our donation entry fee and the lovely woman (I never did get her name) gave us a guided tour of the entire place! She was very knowledgeable and had all kinds of historical stories to go with a lot of the pieces. From farming implements, fashion, marine artifacts and indigenous tools/weapons - the museum covers a lot of info!

Small, but shows history of area running from pre-European contact, First Nation history to recent history. Many artefacts and items of interest. Enthusiastic staff.

The museum is a fabulous collection or items, artifacts and history documenting all that is Tobermory and surrounding area.

The log cabin gives a glimpse of what early life for the local settlers was like. I am partial to the Cabin as it was originally build by one of my ancestors and contains all my family history and family tree on the wall.

Well informed docents and well labeled exhibits make this a worthwhile stop. Check in at the schoolhouse building before visiting the early settlers log cabin.

A great way to spend a rainy afternoon. Interesting memorabilia from when this museum was a one-room schoolhouse. Other items as well such as church items and town items.

There is a rich maritime and land history to this unique piece of geography at the type of the Bruce Peninsula. This little museum provides a glimpse into what life was like in days gone by, long before tourists ever set foot on this part of the province. Harsh conditions that only the hardiest and fittest could endure and an indomitable spirit to go with it. See first hand what households, places of worship and refuge, and life hewing the timbers and fishing the deep cold waters was like in a time when few to nil luxuries existed, save a warm fire, hot meal and a bed to sleep in. Love the archives and artifacts that help me imagine a time I never got to experience and gives me a great pride in the family names of the descendants of those original settlers and inhabitants.

Our host was very knowledgable and grew up in the area. The school house artifacts reminds you of Little House on the Prairie and the home is very well preserved and takes you back in time. Worth the stop even on a sunny day
