Museum Collection

The Legacy of the Lakes Museum is dedicated to the preservation of Minnesota lake culture. Our collection, which includes antique and classic watercraft, resort memorabilia, sporting equipment, and more, tells the story of our ten thousand treasures. Please contact the Museum if you have something you would like to donate. It helps to include photographs and as much additional information as you can (history of artifact, physical condition, etc.). All donations must go through an approval process by our Collections Committee.

The Legacy of the Lakes Museum & Gardens is a 501c3 organization. Donating to the collection may entitle the donor to a tax deduction.
