Gore Bay & Western Manitoulin Museum

The Gore Bay & Western Manitoulin Museum is located at the end of Dawson Street at the top of the hill next to the courthouse where it once served as the jail and jailer's residence. An 1890 jail cell is still intact, complete with inscribed prisoners’ graffiti. The building has unusual artifacts and photographs of the town's early settlers. The museum contains marine relics from the days when Gore Bay was a shipping port and a collection of military artifacts from both World Wars. Visitors can see extraordinary mounted birds and fossils that are all indigenous to the island. A gallery hosts art exhibits, concerts and lectures during summer.
