Assiginack Museum Heritage Complex

Originally built as a jail in 1878, the Assiginack Museum has been operating since 1955 and houses a large collection of artifacts that tell the area's history. Both the 1836 and 1862 Manitoulin Treaties were signed in Manitowaning, and in the 1880s Manitowaning was a bustling port and commercial centre. Our exhibits include local history, pioneer life, native art, an outstanding glassware collection, and much more. The Museum grounds are also home to several transplanted historic buildings, including an 1878 log schoolhouse, a pioneer home, a blacksmith shop, a driving shed, and the Municipal Cenotaph. We also have a lovely picnic area. Open daily June to September. Bus Tours are welcome and we are wheelchair accessible.
