This is a wonderful place to visit. A lot of history here! Worth every penny. Took the speed boat ride here and it was awesome! They also have a houseboat with an interesting history! The houseboat is included with admission but a guided tour.
The reception people sent us first across the street to the power boat building, perhaps because of the tour bus that was unloading? Those were beautiful but so much the pastimes of the very rich. I liked the sections about canoes, rowboats, kayaks best. There were many to view and lots of information, well presented.
We were disappointed that it had closed for the season but would open by appointment. As we shivered outside their doors, we gave them a call. Margaret graciously let us in to the main building, turned on the lights, movies etc and left us to look around for as long as we wanted. 2 hours later we left happy campers!
It is the finest Boat Museum I have ever visited. Wonderful old boats. Location excellent. You need to go in August when they have their annual boat show with people from all over the country showing their boats. Kp
I have visited this world class boat museum for many years and I never tire of it. It is home to one of the best collections of fresh water boats in the world.

The Wooden Boat Museum was just... 更多
Very impressive museum. I am a collector of antique outboard motors and 50s-60s runabout boats. I assumed that this museum would be rather basic. I was pleasantly surprised to see what a great job they have done in making the displays interesting for the general public, and yet in depth enough for the less casual visitor.
Well worth spending 2-3 hours exploring all elements of this multiple-building museum that's been a source of local pride in Clayton for years. Woodies from small to 40'+ are in a dedicated area, and are simply works of boatbuilders' art. The human-powered (canoes, sailboats, guide boats) building was fascinating. If there was a disappointing part of the museum, it was... 更多
The other reviews nail this one. This is definitely a national treasure and an incredible exhibit(s). The boats in the exhibits have been beautifully restored and are shown in a way that illustrates the evolution of various types of vessels (canoes, speedboats, etc.) as well as delving into the history of boating on the St.Lawrence River. If one is anywhere... 更多
