Give Back Tahoe: Tahoe Maritime Museum preps for big move

Special to the Sun

On April 30th we close a very important chapter in Tahoe Maritime Museum’s story. We bid farewell to our former facility, leaving us with many wonderful memories.

This is your last chance to visit our Homewood facility to see our exhibition, Racing Tahoe and our Tahoe City facility to visit our temporary winter exhibition, “Where the Anchor Lands.”

TMM will be closed for the month of May in both of our locations. During this time we will be completing our move from the Homewood facility to our new Tahoe City location.

We will be in need of kind volunteers to help with our exhibit move and the installation of our 2016 exhibition, “On the Water: Sport and Leisure at the Lake,” which was made possible with the generous funding from the EL Weigand Foundation and Give Back Tahoe donors.

Join us Memorial Day Weekend as we open our new exhibition that explores Tahoe’s summer sport and recreation in depth.

We look forward to seeing you and are excited for the beginning of our new chapter where we will continue to stimulate an interest in, increase knowledge of, and maintain watercraft and marine artifacts significant in Lake Tahoe’s maritime history through the highest standards of historic preservation, innovative interpretation and public education.
