H. Lee White Marine Museum
Located at the mouth of the Oswego River, the H. Lee White Marine Museum was developed by the Port of Oswego Authority to reflect the historic importance of the Oswego Harbor, and and the exciting story of Lake Ontario. The museum uses paintings, pictures, models, and artifacts to tell the tale of 300 years of Oswego's incredible history.
New! Take an electronic tour of the Musum's George Gray exhibit featuring paintings of the History of Fort Ontario.
Many of the Marine Museum's hands-on exhibits are geared toward introducing history to younger visitors. The Museum's adjunct holdings include the National Historic Landmark tug, LT-5 (seen at the left of the above picture), used in the "D-Day" invasion of Normandy, and the Derrick Barge Lance Knapp, the last steam powered vessel on the Barge Canal. In the background, Wright's Landing, Breitbeck Park and the Kingsford Bell are clearly visible.
