Nestled at the southern tip of Lake Union, just east of the Museum of History and Industry, the Center for Wooden Boats is a nautical wonderland of preserved vessels. Founded in 1998, it helps those young and old learn about wooden watercraft through hands-on experiences, preserved history, and exciting excursions.
It features a living fleet that can be seen tied to the museum’s docks, a dynamic gallery, and an active boat shop. Free peapod rowboat rentals are available by reservation Wednesdays through Sundays. Whether you’re a boating novice or a maritime enthusiast, there’s something here for everyone.
Wed. thru Sunday, 11:00 a.m. – 7 p.m.
