There are lots of areas for the kids to do things; build their own museum, make a paper canoe, even pretend to be a voyageur camping by the shore!
Yes, a real seal skin kayak!
Old and new, side by side.
The museum doesn't just display old vessels, they make new ones! I spoke with one of the staff members in the workshop, who was in the process of building 6 kayaks for a student expedition in Northern Canada.
I had never considered the vast array of paddle types, until I saw this display in the workshop.
