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.

In June of this year, the West Parry Sound District Museum will be electing new members to our Board of Directors.

We are looking for board members who believe in our mission of "exploring cultural inspiration in a wilderness of incredible beauty and amazing biodiversity" and are willing to be active in their governance roles. We believe that the next term will be an exciting time for the Museum. We are in a period of growth and are seeking active community members to help shape a new and better West Parry Sound District Museum.

To submit your name as someone whose experience and involvement in the community would be an asset to our organization please email

The E. Roy Smith Room, named after Parry Sound's former mayor and one of the founding members of the Museum, is home to the Museum's permanent collection and tells the story of Parry Sound.

In this gallery, you can learn about shipwrecks, the logging trade, the early days of northern life, and much more.
