About Us

The West Parry Sound District Museum, commonly known now as the Museum on Tower Hill, began as a group of dedicated citizens who wanted to ensure the rich history of the district be preserved and interpreted for generations to come.


Today the Museum continues its mission to collect, preserve and share the West Parry Sound District's history with visitors and furture generations, and provide our community with opportunities to explore contemporary topics relevant to today.

The Museum on Tower Hill has two Galleries for visitors to explore.

The E. Roy Smith Gallery houses the permanent exhibit that takes visitors back in time and allows them to explore some of the transformative events and people that helped shape our district. From learning about Georgian Bay and our past shipping history, to exploring the Ottawa, Arnprior & Parry Sound Railway like never before, our permanent gallery is sure to have something for everyone!

Located in the core of the Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve, the West Parry Sound District Museum is situated within the Tower Hill Heritage Garden created by the District Forester of the Ontario Forestry Branch and mere steps away from Parry Sound's Tower Hill Lookout, which gives a 360 degree view of the town and Georgian Bay's harbour. There's no better family destination to explore in the area with these kind of views.
