What a great museum! Upgrade for $3.00 to tour the houseboat! Our only regret is not having the time to upgrade and do the speedboat ride. A beautiful, well executed museum! Great staff!

Race boats, canoes, house boats, skiffs, sailboats amd more! Beautifully laid out museum with videos, signage, boats you can walk on, ride in or rent. Interesting stories posted near the boats. Watch the restorers work in their workshop. All on the beautiful St. Lawrence River.

The Antique boat museum is a must if you like vintage boats. We love boats and seeing the vintage motors and beautiful canoes, motor boats and sail boats along with all of the interesting history makes for a fun museum visit.
