Discover the Classic Boat Museum
Situated in Cowes and East Cowes on the Isle of Wight, the Classic Boat Museum has been telling visitors its wonderful maritime story since 1996.
The Museum consists of the Boat Shed and the Gallery.
The Boat Shed in Cowes (West) has an impressive collection of over 85 boats, from classic yachts, motorboats, and lifeboats to Sir Ben Ainslie's 2017 Americas Cup test boat BAR T1.
The Gallery in East Cowes has an extensive collection of maritime artefacts, boat models and photographic glass plates.
We are looking forward to your visit when we are sure you will enjoy, learn and come to understand the quintessential Cowes story told through its maritime heritage.
