Tom's heirlooms loom large as his family donated his childhood treasures, photos and relics of his early life. Lucky for me his infamous "THE WEST WIND" of Georgian Bay was on loan from the Art Gallery of Toronto. A quaint little museum worth the drive...More

It's not large but has some very good exhibits. Children are welcome and usually enjoy their time there.
