The Canadian Canoe Museum is temporarily closed, and our programs are on pause as we prepare to move to our new museum.

Students have the unique experience of paddling a 36″ Montreal Canoe up the Peterborough Lift Lock and along the canal.  This stunning canoe is a replica of a canoe used in Canada’s Fur Trade era.  Students learn about Voyageur history and First Nations’ roles in the Fur Trade through story, role play, and costume, as well as the history and engineering of the lift lock.
