We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.

Boat Museum Society

The principal aim of the Society is the preservation of historic boats, skills, knowledge, and way of life of the waterways. The Society meets monthly from September to May at the National Waterways Museum and meetings range from talks and lectures by experts in various waterways topics, to more informal social events. Many members of the Society are volunteers at the Museum and provide practical support in a wide range of activities on site. The Society works in partnership with the Museum and helps co-ordinate, train and support the work and activities of volunteers.
