How to Find the Museum

The Museum is located in the Town of Napanee, which is east of Toronto, half-way between the cities of Belleville and Kingston. By car, take Highway 401 to the main Napanee exit (former Highway 41) and go south, towards the downtown. When you exit the 401, you will see a McDonald's Restaurant and a Tim Horton's Coffee Shop. Highway 41 becomes Centre Street. Continue south under the railway underpass, and you will see Thomas Street East on your left. There is no traffic light at Thomas Street. Turn left, and follow Thomas Street East to the County Complex. The Museum is behind the County Court House.
