The Algonquin Logging Museum brings to life the story of logging from the early square timber days to modern forestry management. Start your visit with a video presentation that sums up the logging history of the Algonquin area. On the easy-to-walk 1.5 km trail, a recreated camboose camp and a fascinating steam-powered amphibious tug called an “alligator” are among the many displays. Take a step back in time and learn about this very colourful aspect of Algonquin’s cultural history. As well, the Algonquin Logging Museum has an excellent bookstore staffed by The Friends of Algonquin Park.
Address: Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario 60, Ontario K0J 2M0, Canada
Late June to mid-October
Although the Reception Building (and Bookstore) will be closed outside of these dates, the Logging Museum Trail and outdoor exhibits are always available to Park visitors. As winter approaches and snow accumulates, some exhibits may be "winterized" but the Logging Museum highway entrance is typically plowed for a small pull-off for vehicles as staff time allows.
