Mariners Park Museum

Tourism Region: Quinte

Mariners Park Museum explores the ways inhabitants of the County traditionally earned their living from the surrounding waters: from fishing and shipbuilding, through ice harvesting and rum-running. The lighthouse relocated from False Ducks Island beckons visitors to the site, where they can also explore Forte Kente. The museum has become the home of many shipwreck treasures retrieved during diving expeditions.
