Free Entry to Antique Boat Museum for Clayton Residents August 27 & 28, 2013

CLAYTON, New York – The Antique Boat Museum (ABM), North America’s premier freshwater nautical museum based in Clayton, New York, invites residents of the Museum’s home town to visit free of charge during Clayton Community Days at the Antique Boat Museum on Tuesday, August 27 and Wednesday, August 28, 2013.

The Clayton Community Days initiative has been created to welcome residents from within the 13624 zip code to the ABM, free of charge, as a thank you for being our neighbor and to provide them with the opportunity to explore the Museum, which sits in their own backyard.

“The Clayton community has played a key role in the growth of the Museum for years,” explained Michael Folsom, Director of Marketing and Communications. “We want thank those who live in Clayton for all of their time, devotion, and strong sense of community which has helped to lure visitors from across the world to small town Clayton, NY and our Museum. This is just a small gesture, but we believe the local community should see and experience the Museum just like so many others have.”

Clayton residents wishing to take advantage of this offer should visit the ABM admission desk on August 27 or August 28 and present valid identification indicating residency within the 13624 zip code. Pieces of mail or other non-official documentation will not be accepted. In addition, any youth visitor under the age of 16 with an adult guest from Clayton will be permitted free as well. Summer residents of Clayton without a valid identification within the 13624 zip code are not permitted through this special offer. This offer is intended for full-time Clayton residents only.

Located on the St. Lawrence River in the 1000 Islands, the Antique Boat Museum features a collection of over 300 antique and classic boats, among thousands of recreational boating artifacts. In August 2014, the Museum will host the 50th annual Antique Boat Show and Auction, the longest running show inNorth America. For more information please visit the Museum’s website at
