Memorial Wall

The Museum has a beautiful Memorial Wall located in its main entryway. Making a gift to the Museum's Memorial Wall is a caring and thoughtful way to honour the memory of a lost friend or loved one with a permanent dedication. The name you choose to honour, will be seen by thousands of Museum visitors each year. You can make a real difference to help protect the collection, keep exhibitions open during public hours and support award-winning education programs.

All plaques are laser-engraved on cherry wood and specially displayed within the Museum. You can personalize a plaque that will forever be a part of the history of the Museum.

Memorial Wall gifts are used for laser-inscription, plaque production, and perpetual maintenance of the wall. Your gift helps preserve and celebrate the world’s largest and most historic collection of canoes, kayaks, and paddled watercraft.

The wall gives you a special opportunity to remember someone special in your life. Plus, you will make a real difference to support essential learning, outreach, advocacy, and preservation efforts at the Museum.
