The museum has an extensive collection of memorabilia-including films, trophies, books, and posters-illustrating the stories of famous drivers, races, triumphs, and tragedies. In addition to the hydroplane history archives, the museum is also a fully equipped boat restoration shop where seven of the most famous Gold Cup and Harmsworth winners have been restored to full running condition.
