AAA Editor Notes

Lake Champlain Maritime Museum, on the eastern shore of Lake Champlain at 4472 Basin Harbor Rd., has over a dozen exhibit buildings chronicling the maritime history and nautical archeology of the Champlain Valley through interactive learning stations, video and audio displays, historical artifacts, and images. One of the most popular deciphers the stories of some unusual and dramatic shipwrecks in the lake. Also of interest is a full-size replica of a Revolutionary War gunboat from Lake Champlain’s fleet. Summer workshops on boat-building, blacksmithing and maritime skills are available, along with on-water ecology and historical excursions. Picnicking is permitted. Time: Allow 2 hours minimum.
$12; $11 (ages 62+); $8 (ages 5-17).
