A strong tradition of giving has transformed a small town museum into the largest freshwater nautical Museum in the world with a collection of over 320 boats, a significant archive and a beautiful riverside campus. Gifts from Members, Friends of the Museum, Benefactors and the time and talent of dedicated volunteers not only support the work of Museum of today, but also ensure its place in the world for generations to come.
Abiding generosity in the form of Membership, Friends of the Museum, Annual Giving, Volunteering, restricted donations and planned giving are critical in sustaining the mission of this Museum. We accept with great gratitude gifts of any size, Memberships at any level, planned giving of all types and volunteers of all ages.
