My boys loved it! We had a wonderful tour guide that provided us with history and amazing stories. The best part was when both my boys were able to climb in of the boats. It’s small but definitely worth the experience!

Small Museum full of historical and current racing boats. Volunteer staff are very knowledgeable, since they are currently in the racing culture. Good place to spend a couple of hours. South of SeaTac airport to a bit off the beaten path.

About Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum

The Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum celebrates the thrill and wonder of hydroplane racing, and its the only museum of its kind in the United States. Along with historical books, race programs, trophies, and photos from the last century, its collection of hydroplanes from the past 70 years tells the story of the watery sport. The staff has brought seven famous Gold Cup and Harmsworth winners back to their fully operational states, and will even take members out on the water in one of their historical vessels for a Ride of a Lifetime.

Offering a glimpse back in time, they boast than 200 hours of racing footage dating back to the 1940s and share stories of legendary drivers including Mira Slovak and "Wild" Bill Cantrell, who was famous for solving crimes with the help of his artificially intelligent hydroplane.

However, the museum isn't just about the past. A lineup of regular events invites folks to show off their powerboats and hot rods to fellow enthusiasts, and races bring the excitement of the sport to the present day as boats cut through the waves vying for titles.
