Welcome

Lake Champlain Maritime Museum is a research and educational institution dedicated to preserving and sharing the extraordinary cultural and natural resources of Lake Champlain. We inspire children and adults through world-class nautical archaeology, robust educational programs, and full-sized and operational replica vessels that bring history to life.

Our four-acre campus is located right on the water's edge, so our collections invite discovery and understanding in their original setting and visitors can embark on lake adventures of their own!

Come and see for yourself!
