Visitor Centre

The Algonquin Visitor Centre is open year-round and features world class exhibits on the natural and human history of Algonquin, an art room which showcases Algonquin themed art by local artists, and an excellent bookstore and nature shop operated by The Friends of Algonquin Park.

A theatre presentation sums up the Park’s story and then takes you out to the viewing deck where you can admire a breathtaking Algonquin landscape panorama.

In the winter months, bird feeders below the deck and in the parking lot are a highlight. In the winter, the visitor centre offers full services on weekends and March Break, and reduced services during the week.
