The Frederic Remington Art Museum along with the Antique Boat Museum (ABM) in Clayton, announced a joint partnership for the 2014 tourist season.
The Frederic Remington Art Museum and ABM have entered into a partnership that will provide visitors with the opportunity to experience two of the regions cultural assets at a discounted rate beginning on Friday and running through September 15.
A partnership such as this allows for our organizations to extend the potential reach of new visitors, while further exposing our collections, explained Frederick Hager, ABM Executive Director. In addition, the 47 mile stretch between the two museums provides sight seekers with the ability to ride along the rivers edge and ingest the beauty of the Thousand Islands. It is likely that visitors to either of our museums would greatly enjoy a visit to the other, yet visitor itineraries might put one of the museums off an obvious route. Many of our visitors are passing through town from the Adirondack region into Canada at the Ogdensburg-Prescott Bridge, and ABM visitors are already at their 1000 Islands destination when they visit the Antique Boat Museum. We hope the 1000 Islands visitors will find unexpected delight in Remingtons river paintings, remarks Laura A. Foster, Director of the Frederic Remington Art Museum.
Visitors will have the option of purchasing a combo pass, which includes an adult admission to both museums for a discounted rate of only $16. This offer provides a $6 savings.
The ABM, located at 750 Mary St. and will open for the 2014 season on Friday, while the Frederic Remington Art Museum, located at 303 Washington St. is open year-round.
