The New Hampshire Boat Museum’s exhibitions, collections, programs, and events inspire an understanding and an appreciation of the unique role New Hampshire’s lakes play in people’s lives down through the ages.

A 501(c)(3) founded in 1992 by a group of antique and classic boating enthusiasts, the Museum is located in New Hampshire’s scenic Lakes Region, two short miles from downtown Wolfeboro.

Mission: To inspire an understanding of, and appreciation for the boating heritage of the fresh waterways of New Hampshire. 

We are an experiential museum that focuses on learning through doing.We are anything but staid and boring! We are “More than a Museum, Bigger than Boats.”  When you visit Wolfeboro, we hope you will visit us and also participate in our programs and events.

New Hampshire has over 900 lakes.
