The Legacy of The Lakes Museum (formerly the Minnesota Lakes Maritime Museum) celebrates our lake traditions and legacies, and is committed to their preservation for future generations. Discover classic boats, grand hotel and resort history, fishing memorabilia and much more.

The Legacy Gardens showcase colorful flowers, beautiful water features and a wide variety of ornamental grasses, shrubs and trees. Delightful, quiet alcoves offer a place to relax and reflect. Join us on select Friday nights in the summer for our Music in the Gardens concert series. Contact the Museum today for information on renting the Gardens for your next event.
