WOLFEBORO —New Hampshire Boat Museum (NHBM) in Wolfeboro recently received recognition as the “Best Summer Museum” by New Hampshire Magazine.
According to NHBM Executive Director Martha Cummings, this award showcases all of the positive changes the museum has accomplished this year.
“We are so grateful for this award,” she said. “It has been a busy summer, filled with lots of change and we are glad to see all of our efforts paying off.”
This year, NHBM has revamped its current building by replacing the roof, insulating, and freshening up several exhibits.
These changes, Cummings said, are just the beginning of NHBM’s larger Capital Campaign, which will include repurposing its current structure into a boat restoration shop and constructing a new museum space.
“The campaign is the biggest change for the museum in the last 27 years,” she said. “We are proud of the progress we are making and looking forward to the finished product.”
In addition to the campaign, Cummings said NHBM has continued to develop its learning opportunities and fun events, such as Lake Discovery Camp for kids and a boat restoration and building program for youth and adults.
“It has been a wonderful summer,” Cummings said. “We plan to keep the community updated on our Capital Campaign and are looking forward to an exciting 2020.”
Founded in 1992 by antique and classic boating enthusiasts, NHBM is committed to inspire people of all ages with an understanding of, and appreciation for, the boating heritage of New Hampshire’s fresh waterways.
