Scugog Shores Museum Village
The Scugog Shores Museum is located on beautiful Scugog Island, overlooking the town of Port Perry. The mission of the Museum is to preserve, research, interpret and exhibit artifacts that illustrate the cultural and natural history of the area. The Museum grounds are home to 12 restored buildings in the historic village, heritage flower and vegetable gardens and the Ojibway Heritage Interpretive Lands. Special Events, School Programs and Guided Tours make the Museum an exciting place to visit throughout the year.
You will feel like you have stepped back in time when you walk through the gate and enter the Museum's historic village. The village depicts daily life in Scugog from the mid to late 1800's. Take time to stroll through the Log Cabin and the Lee House, homes of Scugog's earliest settlers. Other buildings in the village include a Blacksmith Shop, Woodwright Shop, Print Shop, Harness Shop, Beef Ring, School House, Church, Drive Shed and two Barns. Heritage flower gardens planted throughout the village blossom spring through fall. A beautiful herb and dye garden and vegetable garden are planted with historical varieties of plants and vegetables. The Museum grounds also include the Ojibway Heritage Interpretive Lands.
