Now that it is 2013, we need to make room for the new products soon to arrive at the Museum Store.

The Museum Store is moving forward by having more Canadian made products available to you our customer.  Currently we provide Artisan Products made in house, items made by local artists, and some Canadian made products.

The initial step to this goal has been finding quality, made in Canada, t-shirts to replace the existing. So now is your time to save, selected t-shirts are reduced to 25% off. But it doesn’t stop there, come in and see our other sale products that are 40% off!

Last night was the exhibit opening for the Museum’s latest addition, ‘A Walk with Kirk’. This exhibit tells the story of our founder, Kirk Wipper’s life.

To insure our visitors can take home a piece of their experience we have selected, and created items that represent this permanent addition to The Canadian Canoe Museum.

Come into the Museum Store to get the following items:
