Museum Day Live! is coming up on Saturday, September 22. 

A national program sponsored by Smithsonian Magazine, Museum Day Live is a one-day event where participating museums across the country open their doors for free. The New Hampshire Boat Museum will be participating again this year! Admission to the museum will be free by showing your Museum Day Live! registration. Come enjoy our 2018 exhibit: New Chapters: Rare Boats That Mark Transitions In Our Culture And Economy 1900 – 1940, which tells the unique stories of entrepreneurial men and women who were integral to recreational boating history on lakes and rivers. Following your visit shop in the Museum Store where you’ll find unique souvenir and gift products ranging from hats, belts, distinctive décor for your home or cottage, and great hoodie sweatshirts – new this year!

Coming this October, enjoy a fall foliage tour on Lake Winnipesaukee aboard the Museum’s 1929 replica Hacker Craft “Millie B.” One of the New Hampshire Boat Museum’s missions is to encourage everyone to enjoy the beauty of our state’s pristine lakes and what a better time than autumn to do so. To that end, the Boat Museum is offering special fall foliage charter tours from October 9th – 20th for groups up to eight people.

The two-hour charter tour begins in Wolfeboro Bay then goes through the Barber’s Pole up to Moultonborough Bay overlooking the Ossipee Mountains and then travels back down through the Hole-in-the-Wall past the Loon Sanctuary ending back at the Wolfeboro town dock. Bring up to eight friends and family members onboard. The fall foliage tour special is $400 for two-hour charter. To make your reservation today, please call the New Hampshire Boat Museum 603-569-4554.

The New Hampshire Boat Museum is a non-profit institution founded in 1992 to celebrate the social history of life on New Hampshire’s lakes and the state’s important fresh water boating traditions. The museum is open to the public daily for the 2018 season through Monday, October 9, 2018. Hours are 10 am-4 pm, Monday through Saturday, and Sunday, noon-4 pm. It is located at 399 Center Street, Wolfeboro, 2 miles from downtown Wolfeboro in the former Allen “A” Resort dance hall.
