ABM TEMPORARILY POSTPONES BOAT RIDE OPERATIONS

Clayton,N.Y. - The Antique Boat Museum (ABM), North America’s premier freshwater nautical museum based in Clayton, NY, announced today that their boat ride operations, originally scheduled to begin on Friday, May 26, will be temporarily postponed.

“Due to the current conditions on the river, and keeping in mind the safety of our visitors and our historic boats, we have decided to temporarily postpone our boat rides,” reported Executive Director, Rebecca Hopfinger. “We will continue to monitor conditions on a weekly basis and we look forward to returning our boats and visitors to the river this summer. In the meantime, we are thinking positively at the ABM and have even found a silver lining: the high water levels will allow us to paint the hull sides of our historic houseboat La Duchesse.”

The ABM remains open to visitors from 9 AM – 5 PM on a daily basis. On Friday, May 26 walking tours of La Duchesse will begin. The Museum Store is also open every day and admission is not required to shop.

Visitors are encouraged to stay tuned to the ABM website, abm.org, for updated information.
