Where can you tour a magnificent 106' historic houseboat, row an elegant St. Lawrence skiff, take a thrilling triple-cockpit runabout ride, explore fascinating exhibits about the legendary 1000 Islands and see more than 100 historic pleasure boats on display, all in the same day? The Antique Boat Museum, of course, home of North America's original antique boat show and auction.

Our mission is to collect, preserve, exhibit and interpret boats and other objects related to the history of boating in North America and to enhance public understanding and appreciation of the contributions of the St. Lawrence River region to North America's boating history.

Our 4.5 acre campus is located on the banks of the majestic St. Lawrence River in the picturesque river-side village of Clayton, NY. Our galleries are overflowing with unique and beautifully-preserved examples of great North American pleasure boats. From May to October each year, our campus comes alive with boat shows, regattas, childrens' activities, guided tours, boat-building classes, elegant dinners and a wealth of other programs and events.
