Really enjoyed the 11 minute movie regarding the big ship battle in this area during the war of 1812 and the history boards in theater bldg. Also liked the museum bldg and the main office which was a great source of information like a tourist office for Wasaga Beach.

The staff were exceptional in their demeanor, explanations and engaging with the public. The museum was beautifully laid out and organized and the property very attractive. Excellent views from the lighthouse.

My son and I had the best adventure here! We enjoyed all the artifacts and displays sent you back in time! The hands on diaplays and the interactive machines were exactly what a 4 year old wanted! The tour guide was straight out of the 1800s and she was very well informed. This was all round an amazing little trip. If you are in the beach i would highly recommend checking this little gem out.

Visiting Nancy island is free of charge but there's box for donations. There' s not really much to see, you can climb to light house replica but you can't go out on the top and windows are so dirty you don't see outside.

Nancy island nice museum and cool history
Aug 2018 • Family
Nancy island historic site and museum is a great place to go in Wasaga Beach on those non beach days with your family .

Staff are happy and friendly. Not a huge museum and site but enough to spend an hour or two.

Cool history on the hms Nancy and the war of 1812.

Lighthouse was cool to see too. Views from the island looking out onto the nottawasaga river were nice too. Cool little history of the first transatlantic flight from mainland Canada to England took off from Wasaga Beach!

Great museum, cool history , great fir those rainy dull non beach days !!

Great place to visit in Wasaga
Aug 2018 • Family
Nancy Island is a lovely little historic site found right in the heart of Wasaga (a few minutes walk from the beach!). There is not set admission fee to visit the island, but donations are much appreciated. The staff here were wonderful, dressed in the clothing of 1812, the showed us around the grounds and taught us about the battle that was fought on these shores, and the sailing vessel that was discovered below (and what later became) Nancy Island. We then got to see parts of that very ship raised from below the lake. It was a fascinating bit of history and a fun break from the heat of the beach. I was especially impressed by the focus they have put on First Nations history in this Site - something we don't see often enough. Overall, this was a great outing for an hour or two when you're in the area.

Nancy Island is a great place to learn about history in a very didactic way. Everyone's weardrobe and knowledge put us back in time. We had fun and learned at the same time.
