Situated in an historic Thomas Fuller Post Office, the museum is a cornucopia of artefacts and information about Arnprior and the surrounding area. Exhibits about the logging industry, the visit of the Prince of Wales in 1860 and the railway makes this a must see for all cyclists. We’re close to restaurants and the beach which makes this an ideal destination. In 2013 we are celebrating the 400th anniversary of Champlain’s travels up the Ottawa River and we are fortunate to have Champlain’s astrolabe on exhibit.
