A Museum on the Move. The New Hampshire Boat Museum is on the move. With the steady growth and expansion of programs, as well as the permanent collection, the time has come for a new facility. One large enough to incorporate robust educational programs, fun activities and events for the greater Lakes Region community and beyond. The Museum will help expand the Lakes Region and New Hampshire’s cultural and economic landscape.
Handsome, engaging exhibits of classic and vintage watercraft and lake history are now complemented by robust programming designed to fully engage youth, adults and entire families in active learning through core programs: boat building, sailing, model sailboat construction and racing, and family activity days. Scholarships make boat building accessible to all. Hands-on learning programs for children and virtual lectures for the public are regular features. Summer’s special events attract enthusiasts and the general public from far and wide. These signature programs include the Vintage Voyage, the Alton Bay Boat Show, the New England Vintage Boat & Car Auction, and a biennial historic race boat regatta.
