Touring La Duchesse was my favorite part . So beautiful and so much history. Our guide was very well informed. Also all the boats on display had a very good description so we could learn about boating.

The boat ride was wonderful as always. The museum was a little disappointing as all the boats were very dusty. We've never seen them in that condition before and it was sad. They had 3 people standing at the front desk just talking to each other, where are the volunteers? It doesn't take long to dust.

Love boats, loved our visit!
Aug 2021
We called ahead and arranged opportunity to row a Skiff. We were accommodated without any challenges. Started our day with speedboat ride and tour of La Douchess. Our delightful tour guide had personal experience growing up playing at Boldt Castle. Our coach, Matt, was wonderful with the Skiff rowing. We shared stories with the guide in the small-boats exhibits as we build small boats ourselves. There's no question that the Antique Boat Museum was the highlight of our trip. Thanks for the wonderful supports!

Our "Ride the River" Boat ride was awesome! My 3rd time doing this and each time it's so fun! Ed was our driver and was very knowledgeable of the river and the many islands we saw.

This is a wonderful little gem. From beautiful boat displays to the availability of an on the River experience, this is a great item to add to your list of fun things to do while visiting the St Lawrence River and the 1000 Islands. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable.

Something different

Something you do not see in every town. Very interesting if you are a boat enthusiast! It adds to the charm of the town.

So Much to see
Jun 2021
Enjoyed see the old boats an the area. Did not feel like we had to run the museum took our time and enjoyed nearly each display.
The restroom could have been a bit nicer.

Tour of the LaDoucheese
Jul 2021
This museum has more to offer than just boats. Lots of history here and we were lucky enough to have Nancy as our tour guide on the LaDoucheese. It's a party house boat and this woman is passionate about her work. She really knows her stuff!
Touring the museum was a great experience. I thought I would be bored but it was a lot of fun. There is a lot to see. Don't miss it and if you can't get Nancy, I think the other guides are excellent too!

We absolutely loved this museum, and the iconic town of Clayton. Take the boat ride if you can, it was a ton of fun!
