A very nice professionally run museum. Filled with donated powerboats from the pre/Fiberglas era. Many from the height of the 1000 Island pre-depression era. For the right price you can arrange for rides on many of them.

Excellent museum. Six buildings with a tremendous variety of boat. Definitely recommend taking a ride in the antique boat on the river.

We could easily have spent more than the 3 1/2 hours we did spend at the boat museum. It was everything we expected and much much more. We really enjoyed the houseboat tour.

An extensive collection of antique boats representative of the area in it's heyday. The site is contained in six buildings and is well laid out. Worth the visit.
