Museum of Yachting information
Want to look at some boats? Head inside this bad-boy museum inside the 1831 Aquidneck Mill for a collection of model yachts, a handful of craft being restored by an on-site restoration school, and pictures of the New York Yacht Club winning the America's Cup regatta for 130 consecutive years until Australia ruined sporting history's longest winning streak in 1983.
Perched on the top floor, the museum commands great views over Newport Harbor. Call ahead to check that the museum is open during summer break (May to September).
