About our Exhibits

Wind and Water.

Simple elements, nature in her purest form, and the inspiration for innovation across the ages as humans have harnessed them to explore, trade, recreate and compete.

Design driven by purpose, whether that purpose is to fly above the water at 50 knots or cruise in comfort with your family, curiosity, creativity and craftsmanship, in every sail, every hull, each and every component.

Teamwork, commitment and dedication create a marriage of the mental and physical skills. Navigation, strategy and tactical decision-making, agility, speed and strength.

Sailing can provide a breakthrough moment that changes a child’s understanding. A thought-provoking encounter that shifts a person’s perspective. Sailing is an immersive experience that transports us to another place and time.

In the space once used as the Press Room for the America’s Cup, the Sailing Museum will explore all of this, igniting the senses and delighting sailors and non-sailors alike.
