Our Spaces

The bright and spacious Event Room is well-suited for weddings, corporate functions, galas and parties alike. An open concept floor plan allows for a lot of flexibility for seating, displays, and presentations. Light, neutral decor plays well as a blank canvas, easily decorated for your specific taste and style.

You also have the opportunity to enjoy cocktails and appetizers while interacting with the largest collection of canoes and kayaks in the world. Hosting your friends or colleagues in the McLean/Matthews Gallery will truly elevate your event, making the Canoe Museum the most unique and memorable venue in Peterborough.

Thank you for all of your hard work and efforts to make our anniversary party the huge success it was. The event staff were friendly and very efficient. It was a pleasure to have them be part of our special celebration. We received many positive comments regarding the facilities and would recommend it to others looking for a venue.

“We had a beautiful time on December 5th.  The CCM was a hit; easy to find for out-of-towners, lots of parking, accessible for my good friend with MS, good sized room for our group, the galleries were well travelled by some, your staff were conscientious, gracious, hospitable and flexible. I am busy recommending the Museum to others who ask. Thanks for making it all so easy”.
