@Discovery North Bay

Since 1973 the former North Bay Area Museum, now @discoverynorthbay, has been a local voice of heritage preservation and education for the community. Our goal for our current exhibits is to tell the stories of our community in a way you've never seen before ... Whether that means seeing archival film footage or photographs of North Bay throughout its history, listening to stories told by members of the community of their experiences in the city and surrounding area, looking at collectibles from North Bayites who put together their own small exhibits in "The Collector's Corner", riding a velocipede, driving a train, testing your skills as a railway postal worker or learning about the future of the "Community Waterfront Park"... there is something to see or do in every nook and cranny of the building.

The Boat – Lakeside Bar and Grill

The original “Chief Commanda”, a 99-ft steel-hulled boat, built in 1946 in Toronto, is named after Chief Raymond Commanda. It ran from 1947 to 1974 and was the first steel-hulled passenger vessel of its size on Lake Nipissing. After its retirement in 1974, it was eventually moved to North Bay where it now rests on land at the Lake Nipissing’s waterfront and functions as a seasonal restaurant. The owners of The Boat are proud of the Chief’s history, and strive for the same level of excellence through their food and beverage services.
