Canadian Canoe Museum
“As The Canadian Canoe Museum awaits the completion of its new state-of-the-art facility on the shores of Little Lake and begins the monumental project of relocating its world-class collection of paddled watercraft, it’s becoming clear the new museum will play a vital role in shaping the region’s economic development by increasing tourism as well as supporting local businesses.
After moving into its new 65,000-square-foot waterfront facility at 2077 Ashburnham Drive, not only will The Canadian Canoe Museum affirm its reputation as a premier tourist destination in the region and country, but it will also extend its local reach through educational programming and usable space for the community.
“We’re shifting from just doing cultural tourism — where we’re offering a museum or art gallery experience — to offering recreational tourism as well,” explains the museum’s executive director Carolyn Hyslop.
The new museum will offer visitors an entirely new experience – one where you can walk in the front door and paddle out the back. 🛶
The spaces – in the building, on land, and on the water – will be inspiring and encourage hands-on discovery for a deeper understanding.
The new museum will feature:
🏗️ An integrated Collection Hall that displays of 100 per cent of the Museum’s watercraft.
🏗️ A 20,000 square-foot Exhibition Hall featuring a brand-new suite of exhibits.
🏗️ A Lakefront Events and Education Centre with a sweeping view of the lake.
🏗️ An authentic Artisan Studio and Canoe-Building Studio to facilitate hands-on learning for youth and adults alike.
🏗️ An accessible Library and Research Room with Class A archival storage.
🏗️ A Café with a fireplace and adjacent Lakefront Terrace.
🏗️ A Canoe House with floating docks to accommodate on-water and outdoor education programming.
