Lake of the Woods Museum is pleased to partner once again with Harbourtown BIZ to present a family evening of celebration, entertainment and refreshments. Start your evening off by circling around Kenora’s Main Street Christmas Tree for the traditional lighting ceremony and then make your way to the Museum where there will be hot apple cider, hot chocolate, cookies and a visit with Santa! 

The Museum will be decorated in its Christmas finery.

We hope you will join us for this community Christmas gathering.

There were 6 prisoner-of-war camps on Lake of the Woods during World War II. The lumber camps housed German prisoners who were set to work out in the bush cutting timber. The Museum has several boat models built by the prisoners at those camps.
