“A Great Place to Tour”

Minnesota Lakes Maritime Museum
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 January 2016

This museum has numerous artifacts, boats and motors from the past. The building is very comfortable and the staff is exceptional. The Museum will give you a good feel of Alexandria lake days gone by.

Less than 10 years old a great addition to the lakes area tourist attraction list. If it is made for personnel watercraft use the chances are you will see it at the museum. Has a beautiful garden in back where they have free summer concerts.

Wonderful way to spend the morning, do not miss the gardens and the photo exhibit is only there until the end of the month, I think. Listen and watch all available videos.

Nice and a very very good display of cool old boats.
Unique ones. How about a helicopter boat? They got one. It's camera friendly and has a nice gallery of a local photo shoot. Nice way to spend a few hours on a cold day in Alexandria

It was interesting, but not fabulous. Woman who worked there had a complete lack of interest or enthusiasm. While looking at the boats was interesting, quite a bit of the information was the history of the resorts in the area. An engaged employee would have made a significant difference. If you are a boating enthusiast, you will enjoy it. If it simply sounds interesting, spend your time (and money) elsewhere.

Anna,

I'm disappointed to hear your visit to our museum was not a positive experience. We pride ourselves on delighting guests. The lack of enthusiasm you encountered is not characteristic of how we operate.

Please let me know the next time you're in the area as I'd like to personally take you on a tour of our museum and share our passion for the history our Minnesota Lakes.
