Located on a ten acre campus in Tahoe City, Tahoe Maritime Center will help local residents and tens of thousands of annual visitors embrace their identity in space and time through an educational and experiential campus consisting of:
More than a storage facility, visitors will be able to tour this building to see the collection of antique boats, engines and small artifacts not part of the current exhibits. It will also include a library and archives for those conducting research.
A hands-on educational workshop where students, adults, and children of all ages will work alongside the boatbuilder-in-residence to restore and build new wood boats.
Three distinct galleries ranging in size from 2,000 – 5,000 sq. ft. each showcasing the Museum’s artifacts in thematic displays. Temporary history exhibits and art installations will also be presented on a rotating basis.
A tiered seating area where scores of visitors will listen to lectures and students will participate in a variety of classes.
Both an educational and entertainment area where children and adults of all ages can try a paddleboard or a rowboat and race radio-controlled speedboats.
The campus of buildings will be connected by beautiful gardens through which maritime themed sculptures and other public art will be placed throughout a series of trails and a performance stage for concerts.
Admissions, introductory gallery, indoor theater area, classroom, meeting room, gift shop and café.
