Get On Board

Step back 100 years into the footsteps of history on the S.S. Moyie – the world’s oldest intact passenger sternwheeler in the world.  Thousands upon thousands of historical objects make this museum visit authentic inside and out. Blow the ship’s original steam whistle (weather permitting).  Peek into a cabin, check out the cargo and vintage cars, check out the mechanics of a working sternwheeler…  Discover something new and exciting with each visit.
