Our Collection

The Collections at the H. Lee White Maritime Museum

 

The H. Lee White Maritime Museum at Oswego houses, maintains, and cares for a collection of locally, regionally, and nationally significant artifacts that are maritime in nature.  We strive to, through education and outreach, make that collection available to the public through our museum and educational programs. Whether your interest is in vessels, shipwrecks, lighthouses, maritime trade and commerce, technology or nature, we have something to intrigue every visitor.  For more information on our vessels, exhibits, archives, or the Oswego West Pierhead Lighthouse, check the links below, or use the dropdown menu above.
