Located in Port hope: the address is: 2762 Northumberland County Rd 28, Port Hope, ON L1A 3V6; probably an hour away from Toronto.
Beautiful statues made of scrapped metal, wood and plastic. I find it very unique, artistic and super creative. Take a look at the pictures that I have included, so get a better picture of this place than describing it in words.
You are allowed to scroll through the place which is probably takes 45min- 60 min to complete (8000 square foot gallery). At the end your self-paced tour, you can purchase their unique collection of items such statues, furniture, arts, crafts, and collective items.
We have seen items from India (such as Nataraja statue, Pillaiyar (Ganapati) statues, Buddha) and some items from Thailand, Bali, Nepal and many more! Most of them looks like it’s hand-made. It is a family-owned business and the staff are super pleasant and helpful. It super visible and you won’t miss it when you drive on Northumberland road. They are also acclaimed as one of Canada’s Top Roadside Attractions. Kids were amazed by the dinosaur, robot and dragon statues, it was huge and bizarre. I wonder how they brought those huge metal statues!
