On the shore of the St. Lawrence River, next to the Gananoque Boat Line docks, is the Arthur Child Heritage Museum. The Heritage Museum is located on the site of the former main railway station of The Thousand Islands Railway, which was destroyed by fire in 1990.

The building’s design is reminiscent of the original islands cottages and fabulous hotels that were built during the Golden Era.

You can take a guided or self-guided tour, and learn about the War of 1812 between Canada and the United States, geography and wildlife of the region and the people of the First Nations.

After your tour, take a short climb up the lookout tower for some magnificent views of St. Lawrence River .
