Robert Tait McKenzie was one of Canada’s best known artists of his time and is a recognized National Historic Figure. McKenzie’s incredible life as a sculptor, philosopher and physician is celebrated in the grist mill he restored.
While at the Mill of Kintail, tour through the museum which showcases the life and works of Tait McKenzie. In the 1930’s, he used the Mill as his summer home and sculpture studio. We can proudly boast having the largest collection of McKenzie’s sculptures and memorabilia in Canada. Throughout the year, we host special exhibits, artisan demonstrations, events and workshops for visitors of all ages.
