“An Interesting Trip Through the Area History”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

We stopped in Dorset on the way back froma day trip Bracebridge in August and discovered the Dorset Heritage Museum. We spent an informative hour learning about Dorset's past assisted by one of the knowledgeable volunteers. While there is no fee, they accept donations.

“Ruth is #1 !!!!!!!”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Ruth added a wonderful touch to our tour! She was able to give us a firsthand account of some of the history of Dorset, and shared with my wife about early days in Huntsville with some of our relatives. Fun to see her school photo there with others. Well done Ruth! Give that lady a raise!

“Best Small Museum I have ever seen”
Reviewed 5 July 2012

They have tons of real furniture, pictures of the area, old school pictures, and tons of scrapbooks with lots of pictures going back many, many years. Anyone who knows the area, has a cottage here or used to live here will find this a fantastic museum and experience.
