Museum of Yachting
Proud of its heritage as a sailing Mecca, Newport is equally proud of its museum dedicated to the sport, which has been acclaimed as one of the top sailor's museums in the nation. The Museum boasts a variety of artefacts and exhibits such as a vast collection of classic power and sail yachts, a gallery devoted to chronicling the America's Cup competition held in Newport between 1851 and 2000; a single-handed sailor's hall of fame; and a glimpse into the sailing lifestyle of the Bellevue Avenue Mansions 'gilded age' brigade.
