“Wow! Not just your "small town" museum.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012 via mobile

This is one of the better small museums we've visited. The collection is great and the docents are friendly and knowledgable. The 2 vessels add a nice peek into the past, too.

“History on the Lake”

Wonderful exhibits and stories. Neat artifacts! A great place to visit! Learn about the Lake and the ships that sailed her. Take a tour of the boats and learn about the Oswego Harbor!

“More people should visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

When I went to school at SUNY Oswego, I didn't even know the Maritime Museum existed.
I went there for the first time last year and it tells about the rich history of city. It inspired me to read a book on the history of the area.
They have a great gift shop.
