Touch the Past in Huntsville at Muskoka Heritage Place, the home of the Muskoka Museum, Muskoka Pioneer Village and the Portage Flyer Train. Life in the late 1800’s is historically recreated with genuine settlement dwellings from the Huntsville area while costumed narrators demonstrate pioneer life and engage and entertain our visitors with pioneer demonstrations and hands-on activities. Stop by the museum for a chronological journey beginning with settlement, development, industry and tourism; and don’t forget a ride on The Portage Flyer steam train while you’re here!
Muskoka Heritage Place is located just two hours north of Toronto, in the town of Huntsville, within easy walking distance from the main street, and with convenient access to world-class Algonquin Provincial Park, resorts, unique artisans, tasteful restaurants, and many shops and services. Muskoka Heritage Place is the primary historical centre in Huntsville, featuring two museums, 18 authentic pioneer buildings, and a genuine open-aired train ride, all situated on a beautiful 90 acre site. Depending on your interests and time constraints, your options are to visit any or all of these venues, all in one stop, all on one property.
