Old Mill Heritage Centre – Empress of Ireland Exhibit

The Old Mill Heritage Centre in Kagawong on Manitoulin Island is hosting an exhibit on the Empress of Ireland.

The R. M. S. Empress of Ireland was an ocean liner that sank near the mouth of the Saint Lawrence River following a collision in thick fog with the Norwegian collier Storstad in the early hours of May 29th, 1914.  It is known as Canada’s own Titanic disaster.

The museum is open from 10am to 5pm every day of the week.
