About Us

The H. Lee White Maritime Museum at Oswego is a 501(c)(3), not-for-profit, museum.  Our mission is "To promote, protect, enhance and collect the maritime historical resources associated with the Oswego River and its drainage basin, the Oswego Canal and Lake Ontario."  


Our vision is to become a nationally recognized and accredited museum of maritime history, heritage and culture.  Our desire to grow, strengthen, and always benefit current and future generations of visitors through an educational intitiative remains very much a part of that process.
