The Frederic Remington Art Museum has forged a joint partnership with the Antique Boat Museumin Claytonfor the 2014 tourist season.
The Frederic Remington Art Museum and Antique Boat Museum will provide visitors with the opportunity to experience two of the regions cultural assets at a discounted rate through Sept. 15.
A partnership such as this allows for our organizations to extend the potential reach of new visitors, while further exposing our collections, boat museum Executive Director Frederick Hager said. In addition, the 47-mile stretch between the two museums provides sight seekers with the ability to ride along the rivers edge and ingest the beauty of the Thousand Islands.
It is likely that visitors to either of our museums would greatly enjoy a visit to the other, yet visitor itineraries might put one of the museums off an obvious route.
Many of our visitors are passing through town from the Adirondack region into Canada at the Ogdensburg-Prescott Bridge, and Antique Boat Museum visitors are already at their Thousand Islands destination when they visit the Antique Boat Museum. We hope the Thousand Islands visitors will find unexpected delight in Remingtons river paintings, Remington Museum Director Laura A. Foster said.
Visitors will have the option of purchasing a combo passwhich includes an adult admission to both museums for a discounted rate of $16. This offer provides a $6 savings.
The Antique Boat Museum is located at 750 Mary St., Clayton, and will open for the 2014 season Friday. The Frederic Remington Art Museum, 303 Washington St., Ogdensburg, is open year-round.
