Muskoka Boat and Heritage Centre is a unique and highly interactive museum, which offers visitors a chance to step back in time to the steamship era, and marvel at some beautifully preserved working antique boats. Gravenhurst Opera House has entertained over 6 million visitors since it first opened its doors in 1901.
