Whilst staying with relatives we decided to visit Hutchinson House Museum. It is a wonderful example of how life evolved at the turn of the 19th century. All the artifacts are genuine and are layed out room by room to show how the life of a doctor and his wife were I've. The web site is full of useful information and our visit was enhanced by our volunteer guide Bob. Be aware that this house is built over three storeys and therefore some people may have difficulty with the stairs.

The heritage value of the William Dixon house lies in its association with the Dixon family, one of the six original Colony Settlers of the Peterborough area. William Dixon immigrated to Canada from England with his parents in 1818. In 1829, after his marriage to Isabella Harvey, William built his first house on a share of the family land.

This is a family run business that is done very well. Jamie the guide made this the most memorable experience for my son. We were there in August and my son had never been on a boat. It was his 4th birthday and Jamie went out of his way to make it a truly special day for him. He showed him where the driver sits, how the boat works. It was a wonderful experience from a adult perspective as well. The tour was very informative, and the views were just lovely.
