The New Hampshire Boat Museum opens for the 2017 season on May 27th at 10 a.m..
The featured exhibit, “Big Dreams, Little Boats Mid-Century Model Toy Boats” looks back to a time when young boys collected and played with model toy boats and dreamed of growing up to own a full-size boat.
2016 saw many new boat donations to the Museum. These will be featured on the main exhibit floor including a very rare 1929 Chris-Craft Limousine Sedan, one of only five remaining in the country. Other donations on display will be a 1935 25′ Chris-Craft custom triple cockpit runabout, a 1939 Lyman, a 1939 galvanized steel Starcraft, and a 1951 Penn Yan CZT Swift race boat.
The final donation on display will be the Museum’s first car – a 1922 Maxwell Touring Car which was used by Jack Benny while he made personal appearances in Phoenix, AZ.
The Museum is open from Memorial Day weekend to Columbus Day weekend, Monday through Saturday from 10 to 4 and Sundays from noon to 4.
