The Muse contributes to a strong community by inspiring a passion for our history, arts and culture.
The Muse is comprised of the Lake of the Woods Museum and the Douglas Family Art Centre.
The award-winning Lake of the Woods Museum, one of the finest small museums in Canada, is located in the City of Kenora, Ontario, the gateway to Canada’s west. The Museum was established in 1964 and seeks to promote understanding of and respect for the cultures and heritage of the Lake of the Woods area, and to engage a diverse community in discovery and learning.
Today, this well-established museum is home to a varied and intriguing collection of artifacts and thematic displays and special events.
The Douglas Family Art Centre opened in late 2019. A large collection of pieces from artist, Walter J. Philips, were donated by Bryce and Nicki Douglas – two summer residents of Kenora. These pieces form the basis of the Art Centre’s permanent collection.
The Douglas Family Art Centre offers a high caliber of rotating art exhibitions throughout the year, including work from local artists, as well as nationally and internationally acclaimed artists. An extensive range of events and programming are also offered, including children and adult art classes, educational talks, family activities, performances, film screenings, and more.
