  • Great place to visit to learn about boats and a brief history of Lake Tahoe. $5 entrance fee. :) Staff was really charming and friendly.
  • We enjoyed visiting this small museum. There were several Gar Woods and Chris Craft boats on display on one side of the museum, and a kid's exhibit about Tahoe Tessie on the other side of the museum. Boat buffs would enjoy. The Tahoe Tessie exhibit was cool and occupied kids for 20-30 minutes.
