Finger Lakes Boating Museum


An official Path Through History Site! Finger Lakes Boating Museum is nestled at the southern tip of Keuka Lake, which in the Iroquois language means "Canoe Landing." You might expect that a region named for its magnificent bodies of water would have a long history in boating including everything from boat building to the use of commercial boats for transporting trade and raw materials back when Hammondsport was still "the frontier," to steam boats offering tourists recreational cruises a hundred years ago, to leisure craft activities like fishing, sailing, canoeing, or rushing over the water at high speeds. Located in several historic buildings that were once part of the original Taylor Wine Company, The Finger Lakes Boating Museum exists to preserve the boating heritage with a growing collection that currently includes 115 boats built by many of the regional boat builders of the last century. Just minutes from beautiful Keuka Lake, the museum has displays and activities for the entire family. Open daily from 10:00 am-6:00 pm, the Finger Lakes Boating Museum admission rate is $7 for adults, and free admission for members and children under 12.
