I had not planned to stop here, but when I left the nearby Runestone Museum it was pouring rain so I decided to visit this museum and was so glad I did. This museum only opened in 2005 but it has an amazing array of exhibits on a variety of subjects-beautifully restored wooden boats, history of resorts in the area,... More

A very interesting museum with a great variety of historic, unique boats and fishing collections. Everything is displayed very well and we actually went through twice because we didn't notice everything the first time (hint - look up as there are several boats suspended from the ceiling). If you have a smartphone, make sure you have a QR reader app... More

Beautiful displays of boats and history of the Alexandria Lakes Area. The Gardens with the stream running through it are beautiful. The museum hosts great concerts in the summer.

This place has it all...history, beautiful and unique boats, fishing and resort memorabilia, a wonderful garden amid ponds with a stage where special musical events occur throughout the summer and even a special photography exhibit for the summer of 2015. Bring the kids too...there's a fun activity for them to do!

This museum is just wonderful. The boats, of course, are the main event, but the museum itself is just beautiful. And the grounds in the back of the museum are fantastic. I highly recommend this as a must-see stop if you are in the Alex area.

I was lucky enough to visit during my recent trip to Alexandria. Their amazing collection of gorgeous wood boats, the beautiful gardens and the warm, knowledgable staff... I was blown away. They also had a special exhibit by a MN photographer that was truly incredible. There is really something here for everyone to enjoy and it was definitely a highlight... More

We visited with a group while in Alexandria. Our guide was informative and the boats are amazing. A great stop. Don't forget the gardens outside.
