The Museum of Yachting in Newport, Rhode Island's Fort Adams opened in 1979. In 2007 it converged with the International Yacht Restoration School and the two sometimes present joint programming and work together to tell the history of the region's sailing history.

In addition to serving as the location for a number of events during the America's Cup World Series' tenure in Newport, the museum is also home to two permanent exhibits: The America’s Cup – The Newport Years and Coronet: The Long Life and Revival of an Historic American Schooner Yacht.[1] It's also home to a Hall of Fame which honors moments and figures in yachting's history.[2]
