Venue Rental

The Finger Lakes Boating Museum has a beautiful and unique venue suitable for events of up to 65 guests. 


The former Taylor Wine Company wine cellars are steeped in local history.  Originally built in 1886 as the Columbia Wine Company, Taylor purchased the building in 1919 for wine storage.  The large 2,000 plus gallon oak wine casks are still in place as they would have been then. 

In the past, the "Taylor Room" and adjoining "Admirals' Quarters" have hosted birthdays, wedding and baby showers, rehearsal dinners, and smaller weddings.  The space comes with a bar area, bathroom, and small catering kitchen with double sink and refrigerator. 


The main entrances to the cellars are through the iconic oak doors located in the front of the building, and so beloved by visitors and locals alike.
