The Georgina Military Museum
The Georgina Military Museum is a non-profit, community-based organization which aims to showcase and educate the public on Canadian wartimes. The museum strives to present an insightful gaze into the struggles of war through an archive of artifacts and audio/visual presentations including life-sized replicas of tanks, military cargo and vehicles. The museum is located just a few minutes north of the Simcoe Landing community, making it an easy commute for the whole family!
Eildon Hall Museum
Located at Sibbald Point Provincial Park, the Eildon Hall Museum is a charming nineteenth-century heritage home turned museum nestled in the wilderness. Constructed and owned by the Sibbald family, the building opens its doors to the public allowing them to get a sense of domestic life in rural Ontario during that era. An Ontario Historical Plaque was even erected by the province to commemorate Eildon Hall's role in Ontario's heritage. Costumed interpreters, treasured heirlooms, and priceless family stories await you. Please keep in mind that the Eildon Hall Museum is only open from July to August.
The ROC describes itself as York Region’s adventure headquarters, and who could argue? The ROC is an all-season outdoor adventure park that features activities such as rock climbing, snowboarding, archery and so much more!

It’s also an epicenter for fishing that brings together anglers from all around the nation in both the summer and winter seasons. Residents of Simcoe Landing will definitely enjoy this incredible lake today and for future generations to come.
