The West Parry Sound District Museum, commonly known as the Museum on Tower Hill, began as a group of dedicated citizens. Today the Museum continues to preserve and interpret the core cultural themes that carved the West Parry Sound District out of a rugged Canadian landscape and explores contemporary topics relevant to today's communities.

The West Parry Sound District Museum is updating the exhibitions in the E. Roy Smith Gallery to fit
a working model of the Ottawa, Arnprior and Parry Sound Railway
, terminating in Depot Harbour! This generous donation will require a remodel of the gallery. We hope to begin the remodel in fall 2019 to include the train, a new trapper's cabin, new flooring and updates to our pre-existing exhibits.

This can only be achieved through your generosity and passion for the West Parry Sound District's history. You can learn more about our train project, click here to watch a video of Hammond with Cogeco or click here to see how we moved the Mackinaw Boat from the E. Roy Smith Gallery to the Founder's Room.

UPDATE: We are happy to announce that with the funds raised from our GoFundMe page and donations from outside the campaign, we reached our $5,000 February goal! We are so thankful to everyone who made this feat possible. This was just the initail phase of the project. You can still contribute to our cause by donating on our GoFundMe or by contacting Manager/ Curator Nadine Hammond.
