The Finger Lakes Boating Museum was created in 1996and preserves and shares the boating activities and boat building heritage of the Finger Lakes. The museum's collection includes more than 200 boats built by many of the 40+ commercial builders identified to date as having built boats throughout the Finger Lakes Region during the last century.

The museum is housed in the historic former Taylor Wine Company's main building. Visitors can see canoes, rowboats, row outboards, outboard runabouts, inboards, hydroplanes, and sailboats. Many related artifacts and ephemera are also on display.

The main building contains an active boat shop where visitors are able to see restoration projects underway.
