Explore some of the lake's 300+ historic shipwrecks in our Nautical Archaeology Center and chat with nautical archaeologists at our Conservation Laboratory. Learn what made this area so pivotal to Benedict Arnold's fleet during the American Revolution in our Key to Liberty exhibit. Discover the lives of the Native Americans and the early French explorers in the Contact of Cultures exhibit. LCMM’s replica 1862 schooner Lois McClure travels to ports throughout the region. Highlights of LCMM’s collection of canoes, kayaks, and wooden boats are on display in the new Hazelett Watercraft Center. Learn about some of the 26 steamboats of Lake Champlain, the historic Champlain Bridge, and see our collection of more than 50 vintage outboard motors from the late Raymond R.

Accessibility
All of the museum buildings are accessible at grade level or with ramps built in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Approximately one-third of the museum site consists of open grounds, which include gardens, grassy and natural areas, pine groves, picnic areas, gravel walkways, outdoor exhibits, and facilities for watercraft at North Harbor. The replica 1776 gunboat Philadelphia II is located in the water, at the base of a steep gravel path and is not wheelchair accessible. However, two films and a 1/6 scale model in the exhibit "Key to Liberty: The Revolutionary War in the Champlain Valley" provide an alternative source of information about the gunboat and its history. The replica canal schooner Lois McClure is only accessible by stairs. However, interpreters are always available during hours of operation for questions.
