40 years anniversaryThe principal aim of the Boat Museum Society (BMS) is the preservation of the historic boats, skills, knowledge and way of life of the waterways. The society founded the Boat Museum (now the National Waterways Museum) in Ellesmere Port, which it continues to actively support.

One of the major activities of the society’s members is to work as volunteers to support the museum in all day to day administrative and operational activities on site. This includes assisting with the repair, restoration, and operation of the boats and engines in the museum’s collection.
