Welcome to the New Hampshire Boat Museum

Opening day is just around the corner!

The 2017 season at the New Hampshire Boat Museum will be filled with plenty of new and exciting exhibits and activities.

The featured exhibit, “Big Dreams, Little Boats Mid-Century Model Toy Boats” looks back to a time when young boys collected and played with model toy boats and dreamed of growing up to own a full-size boat.

2016 saw many new boat donations to the Museum. These will be featured on the main exhibit floor including a very rare 1929 Chris Craft Limousine Sedan, one of only five remaining in the country.  Other donations on display will be a 1935 25′ Chris Craft custom triple cockpit runabout, a 1939 Lyman, a 1939 galvanized steel Starcraft, and a 1951 Penn Yan CZT Swift race boat. 

The final donation on display will be the Museum’s first car – a 1922 Maxwell Touring Car which was used by Jack Benny while he made personal appearances in Phoenix, AZ.
