Tahoe Maritime Museum

Tahoe Maritime Museum was founded in 1987 by those dedicated to preserving the rich maritime history of Lake Tahoe. 

In addition to the rotating exhibits, enjoy these permanenent displays:

The Jevarian Outboard Motor Collection

Discover the various types and the mechanics behind outboard motors through viewing this piece of the museum’s outboard motor collection.


In 2000, the Alstom Shilling Robotics Company from Davis, California stumbled across the submerged vessel that we know today as Shanghai. Over the course of the next few years scientists worked to raise her and then place her in a state of arrested decay. Learn about Shanghai’s early life and recovery through the text and photo display surrounding one of Tahoe’s oldest residents.

Truckee Annex

Filled with rare boats too large for the Homewood site, a visit to the Truckee Annex is a must for hard core boat lovers. This portion of the museum is available for viewing during scheduled open houses but groups may also enjoy this display by calling ahead of time for an appointment: 530-525-9253
