Finger Lakes Boating Museum
Hammondsport, New York
The Mission of the Finger Lakes Boating Museum is to preserve and share the fascinating history of the Finger Lakes boating industry and the pivotal role it has played in the development of the region and beyond. The Museum exhibits boats and ephemera, holds workshops and classes in boat building skills and holds lectures on the history of boating, fishing, development and recreation of the area. Restoration projects are ongoing and open for public viewing. Housed in the former Taylor Wine Company buildings in Hammondsport, NY we are also able to share some of the early history of the wine industry of the Finger Lakes.
The American Sign Museum promotes sign preservation and restoration by displaying nearly 100 years of signage. We preserve and protect American history and pay homage to the artistry and craftsmanship of days gone by. Our collection honors an often overlooked part of our culture that hides in plain sight as part of our daily lives.
