The Sailing Museum

The Sailing Museum offers sailing enthusiasts the chance to revel in their sport and new sailors to be enticed to take to the water for the first time.

A personalized journey through six thematic areas begins with the selection of a boat. For sailors, they can select from one of seven on the screen; while those experiencing sailing for the first time will be given the option of a short quiz that will help them select a boat. For all, this boat will become their avatar throughout their museum experience, guiding them through the interactive elements, several of which will be specific to their selected boat.

The exhibit hall of the museum is divided into six thematic areas:

Wind & Water
The Making of a Sailor: Mental
The Making of a Sailor: Physical
Teamwork
Competition
Legends of Sailing: National Sailing Hall of Fame & America’s Cup Hall of Fame
