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!

This museum was much larger and more elaborate than I expected from promotional materials. It is housed in a complex of beautiful buildings. The docents were welcoming and well-informed.

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.
