The Antique Boat Museum is the premier fresh water nautical museum in North America. Located in the 1000 Islands on the St. Lawrence River, the ABM’s galleries overflow with over 300 unique and beautifully-preserved boats and thousands of recreational boating artifacts. From May through October, our 4.5 acre campus comes alive with speed boat rides, boat shows, educational programs for all ages, special events and more.
Floating Through: Boats & Boating in Contemporary Art explores the way boats are used as symbols and mediums in art to reveal the greater meaning of boats in our culture, for boaters and non-boaters alike.
The Lure of the Thousand Islands, a new exhibition that provides a lively introduction to the history and geography of the Thousand Islands Region.
