The boat museum is a fun place to spend a couple of hours, I wouldn't expect to keep kids occupied for very long. They do over sailing lessons and several other activities that are very fun. The staff is incredible and friendly.

My favorite attraction is the tour of the house boat that once belonged to the Boldt family. Lots to see and learn.

This is a must see for anyone visiting the thousand Islands. A true look at the history of boating with awesome displays of wooden boats powerboats and speedboats. Most likely the best collection in the world.

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.

We where camping in the area and decided to swing in and have a look. The boat history there is amazing. Definitely worth a look.

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
