“Lots of History and Cool Boats”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

A Nice way to spend an hour or so. Lots of old boats to look at, as well as a room with old fishing lures. Several video stations to watch also. Pretty neat, even if your not into fishing or boating or duck hunting, still very interesting.

“Don't miss this great little museum!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Wonderful museum dedicated to the history of the lakes area and vintage wooden boats. Doesn't take a huge amount of time to see but well worth the visit. Very nicely kept, nice grounds and great exhibits. All ages will enjoy it!

This has so many well cared for boats it's hard to decide where to look first. But if floating on water is your thing this is your place very nice !
