Every Canoe Has A Story To Tell (and Preserve)

Please Join Us In The Telling

It seems that every canoe has a story that is important to someone. Maybe it's a family heirloom you cherish? Maybe an adventure to remember, or an ongoing love story perhaps? A special river, lake, or place you recall? Maybe it's a continent explored, a history made, a heritage worth preserving?

We want to preserve them all, the canoes and the stories. By becoming a member of the Wisconsin Canoe Heritage Museum (WCHM) you will join a community of canoe preservationists and story tellers, working together to make sure future generations hear our canoe stories.


Becoming a member is a great way to support the WCHM, and keep up on upcoming events and news. Members receive a quarterly newsletter via their choice of either PDF email or US postal mail delivery. They also receive free museum exhibit hall admission and a WCHM logo sticker. We invite you to download a recent sample issue of our newsletter from the sidebar on the right.
