Conserving and celebrating our Wooden Boat Building heritage is the goal of the Wooden Boat Museum of Newfoundland and Labrador. A legacy shared by all Newfoundlanders and Labradorians, preserving it is our collective responsibility.
The Wooden Boat Museum is located on The Baccalieu Trail (Highway 80) in Winterton, approximately 72 kilometers north of the Trans Canada Highway.
