The Wooden Boat Museum located in Winterton is the headquarters of WBMNL’s organization. Visit Winterton to explore the rich heritage of Newfoundland and Labrador from the perspective of our traditional wooden boats. Exhibits display our history from skin-covered kayaks used by indigenous peoples to the punts and dories that were hauled ashore with the Cod Moratorium. With ongoing oral history collection, our museum weaves personal experiences of our people to the broader cultural and economic story of fishing communities throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. For a unique experience, join our boatbuilder in the shed during your visit or sign-up to take part in a boat building workshop.
An additional exhibit can be viewed in Trinity.
