“Hidden Gem of Alexandria”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

A great place for a quiet date. My boyfriend loves boats so we decided to check it out. We both really enjoyed strolling around looking at everything. A great surprise was the garden in the back. It's absolutely beautiful, if we could we would stay there the whole day and just enjoy the view. I can see why people want to have weddings here.

A great place to visit with awesome boats. We had no idea of what to expect and it was well worth our time. Don't miss it!

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

This museum is the reason we stayed in Alexandria for the night. Have always had a attraction to the classic wooden boats. Enjoyed the history of crafts and the view of the room with all the Chris Crafts, Gars, etc., is simply breathtaking!! It was raining to hard to take in the gardens-another trip.

“Beautiful Gardens”

There for a wedding. It was absolutely beautiful. The worker was great to us (the wedding party). Didn't get a chance to look around the entire museum but I will go back most definitely.

“If you enjoy classic motorboats....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We didn't know what to expect at this little gem of a museum...but were wonderfully surprised by the extensive collection of classic motor boars in fabulous condition from the 1940's, '50s and '60s....along with all sorts of hunting and fishing boats, motors and the history of the Erickson Boatyard. Plus there is a lovely waterfall garden out back. It brought back lots of fun childhood memories and for the younger generation...they will be impressed on how beautiful motorboats were crafted back then. Fun for the whole family...and very small fee to get in.
