Model Boat Show at the National Waterways Museum

We're welcoming the return of the Model Boat Show to the National Waterways Museum for the seventh consecutive year over the weekend Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 March.

The weekend is a fun packed event for enthusiasts and beginners alike as the boats will once again occupy a large section of the canal. Model Boat Clubs from across the North West will assemble to display and exhibit hundreds of the best boats built by their clubs in the past year. 

John Inch, general manager at the National Waterways Museum, said: “The annual Ellesmere Port Model Boat Show gives members of the public the unique chance to take control and try steering the intricately designed boats for themselves. 

“Special highlights of the weekend include boat races, steering challenges, free sailing, model boat building demonstration and the award for the best boat.”

There will also be multiple model boat traders selling parts and full kits as well as being available to offer advice on how to construct your own models.

Admission to the event is only £3.50, which includes access to the rest of the museum.  For more information contact the museum on 0151 355 5017.
