When walking around town we came upon the museum. The original architecture is mostly intact and the building is charming. We were up on the Bay for a boating vacation, so this provided a great kick start to that. The staff was knowledgeable and the view of Boldt Castle was phenomenal. Great little spot for a rainy day or before boating.

Stopped by in the late afternoon and fully enjoyed the museum items and local history write ups. Lots of great photos and memorabilia. Outstanding view of Boldt Castle, which is just across the river. While looking out the upstairs windows, we watched huge container ships pass right in front of our faces. Wished we'd had more time here.

A great way to enrich your visit to the region. Full of historical tidbits for history buffs, very friendly staff, and books for sale!

Cornwall Brothers is a small museum, but it is full of interesting items. My husband and I were escorted around by the gentleman who owns/runs it. There is a lot of Alexandria Bay's history here with everything from collectible decoys to an 1866 bank vault. Outside of the store, there is a beautiful view of Boldt Castle. It seems to be very active with different types of lectures and activities that are ongoing.

There is no charge, but there is a donation box if you should decide to give. It's worth it!
