  • My husband and I really enjoyed our stop at this museum. It was a cold winter day and we were the only ones here! I loved all of the exhibits and, especially, the anecdotes about the shipwrecks...  more »

  • A super neat museum filled with interesting tidbits of history you can explore at your own pace. We spent a couple of hours exploring here and saw most of it. By far the coolest part was the life-sized replica of a Schooner in a storm. There was also a kids play area. Definitely a Michigander's destination to learn about our heritage.
  • It's a great place to visit and check out all the displays and exhibits. You can even climb aboard a replica vessel and experience what the crew experienced. You can also climb aboard, Lady Michigan (during the shipwreck tour hours, that is). And tour the many shipwrecks in, Thunder Bay/Lake Huron.
