From Smiths Falls you can have a fun day of learning while touring the town’s three museums. Start with the Rideau Canal Museum for a closer look at how the canal was built, with interactive displays for a hands-on experience. Next up is the Heritage House Museum located along the Rideau Canal. This Victorian-style home allows you to step back in time while touring 8 period rooms. This is a great spot to enjoy a packed picnic lunch in the Victorian gardens. Last but not least, visit the Railway Museum of Eastern Ontario where you can see an old steam locomotive and view the latest exhibits.

There are a number of restaurants in Smiths Falls for you to appease your appetite before, after, or in-between museum tours.
