Thousand Island Culture and Art
The Thousand Islands Boat Museum (TIBM) boasts a tidy collection of vintage boats and restored watercraft; some of them docked on the river—there is an interactive children's room too. TIBM is a must if you'd like to learn more about the folks who built the sturdy, rustic boats, how they traversed the islands, and built island cottages. The Arthur Child Heritage Museum meanwhile is dedicated to preserving and showcasing the life and times of the Thousand Islands people. You can pick up local mementos, jewellery, skiff clothing and even maple syrup from their gift shop. VAGA Art Gallery (Visual Artists of Gananoque and Area) established in the summer of 1993 showcases the works of local artists in mediums spanning collage, graphite, oil, pastels, and more.
Combine your culture quest with a boat cruise on the St. Lawrence River. The Rhineland-inspired Boldt Castle technically lies in the USA near Alexandria Bay but is accessible by boat or water taxi from Gananoque. Discover a tragic love story that lies behind the construction of the gigantic 120-room castle. The Boldt Castle Yacht House on Wellesley Island stands testament to the wealth of the Boldt family with its magnificent towers, spires, and shingle-style architectural design. Don't miss the 1892 Steam Yacht and antique wooden boats while here.
Once back at your cottage rental, why not check out the Thousand Islands Playhouse, named “the most charming theatre in Canada” by CBC Radio. Their eclectic program includes rib-tickling comedies, musicals, and powerful dramas. Local taverns near the playhouse are perfect for a pre-show supper.
