  • The Sailing Museum The Sailing Museum
    As sailors, We believe that sailing teaches critical life skills: teamwork, leadership, self-reliance and responsibility. We believe what you see on the water will change the way you see life on land. We believe everyone should have access to that experience. The Sailing Museum will bring incredible people and inspiring stories from across the country into ONE place that is accessible to all. The Sailing Museum is an educational non-profit organization that is home to the National Sailing Hall of Fame and America's Cup Hall of Fame. In the space once used as the Press Room for the America's Cup the heritage of sailing will be celebrated, the legends of the sport honored and new sailors and innovators inspired. Interactive educational exhibits will provide real-world applications of STEAM concepts that come alive through sailing; and visitors of all ages, non-sailors and sailors alike, will experience the magic that happens when wind and water meet. Newport, Rhode Island
