WatercraftThe Museum holds 86 vessels built from the 1880s to the 1980s, including wooden sail, power, and row boats. It is the largest and most important collection of its kind in the world. All of the region's types of waterfowling boats are represented, along with most of the major types used in the region's fisheries, as well as a good sample of recreational watercraft.

Seven historic vessels are maintained afloat, and the Museum's Boatyard Programs restore vessels of all types.
