The Watercraft Restoration Center is a working exhibit in the bottom level of the Boatshop. Upon entry, visitors are directed along a viewing platform that rises gently along the south wall, offering multiple vantages of vessels under construction and restoration. The platform turns 90 degrees to allow longitudinal views of the vessels, as well as the Center’s workbenches and tools. Visitors will get the chance to observe and engage with staff and volunteers as they restore, reproduce, and preserve vessels in our collection, commissions, and donated boats to be sold. The Center not only increases our total watercraft exhibit space, it provides an additional interactive exhibit.
