"One of the most interesting and friendly small town museums in Ontario" Harvey Currell - Toronto Sun

"If there were an award for the best small town museum in Canada, this would surely be a candidate. It's crammed with artifacts from Great Lakes shipping, and has insightful commentary, plus plenty of hands-on displays" Leslie Papp - Toronto Star 

In 2009, with the assistance of a grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the Almidart, a 1934  fishing vessel built by George Gamble Shipyard in Port Dover, was permanently dry docked at the Museum. Surrounded by walkways, interpretive panels and platforms to view the tug, it has become a major attarction and record of Port Dover's historical connection to Lake Erie and the industry that helped build the town.
