A large collection of local history for the hydroplane fan. There are boats you can actually sit in and an active workshop you can visit in the back. The only reason I gave it four stars was because of the odd duck showing us around the museum who talked too much about things other than boats.

The staff is very friendly. But the museum is small.

We spent a couple hours there looking at exhibits and reminiscing. Talking with the museum employee was really nice. He spent a lot of time with us and showed us extra video footage of some great hydro races and driver interviews.

If you are a casual fan, or especially if you grew up following the Thunderboats, don't wait any longer: GoTo the Hydroplane Museum!

Very cool!!! I don't know why more people don't go see this place. It's well worth the admission price but hardly anyone there. Try this out folks. You will be glad you did!
