This floating and boat-house museum is a must see if you love the wooden boats from the 20s to the 60s. From smaller runabouts to big old cabin cruisers moored at the dock this place has an impressive collection.

Not as big as Clayton's (as I remember) but some well preserved boats and motors. Still had two "woodies" in the water in late Sept. Too bad they didn't offer tours of them.

My wife and I visited here on 8/15/17. I'm 72 years old and grew up around some of these wooded craft. Amazing to see working boats that are that old. Then visit the museum to see old motors and other vintage boats.

This is a small but interesting museum. A tidy collection of original and restored watercarft. The collection also includes a collection of outboard and inboard motors. Staff were very friendly.

I am unsure how this classifies as a museum. Small amount of boats placed on the floor for display. No information and we had to hunt to find anyone working.

Fun hour poking around the 2 buildings we visited. Interesting chat with a volunteer who helped rebuild an antique boat on display. Another interesting chat with a very conscientious and knowledgeable young female volunteer. If in Gananoque I would definitely visit. Don't need a lot...More

We stopped by for the antique boat show on the weekend. While there wasn't a huge number of boats there was a nice selection and the new docks are great.
