Six Things to Know About The Center for Wooden Boats

At The Center for Wooden Boats, you can explore vessels from days of yore in exhibits before taking to the water in a classic sail or row boat yourself. Read on to learn more about this unique place that’s half-museum, half-boat-rental facility:

  • It's a living museum. This means you won't find any “no touching” signs. In fact, touching is encouraged. The museum believes that by getting up close and personal with the historical boats, you'll better appreciate them and learn more overall.
  • The collection is always changing. That's because the center's workers are constantly acquiring and repairing new boats.
  • Classes are available for everyone. Kids, families, and adults can take classes on subjects such as sailing, toy-boat building, woodworking, or attracting mermaids with carefully chosen sea chanteys.
  • You can get your hands dirty. There’s an on-site a workshop where visitors can learn traditional wooden-boat maintenance skills.
  • You can donate your old boat to support the museum. Donations are either put on display or sold to raise money for the center.
  • No stuffy dress code required. “This is an opportunity for people to sort of be a member of a yacht club,” founder Dick Wagner told the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. “You meet a lot of neat people, and you don't have to wear a blue blazer.”
