"Oswego has the good fortune to be surrounded by water, whether it is a Great Lakes, a spectacular harbor or a fish-filled river, which is also part of the greater New York State Canal system. This is a great opportunity to learn and experience all the waterfront has to offer. We call it a putting your toe in the water and see what you might like to do to have fun but didn't know where to start opportunity." noted Mercedes Niess, Executive Director of the Maritime Museum. There will be displays for each partner organization as well as demonstration opportunities and information on upcoming water related events.
The Museum and Treasure Chest Gift Shop are open every day from 1-5 pm with expanded hours July and August from 10-5 pm. For more information contact: 315.342.0480.
