Bayfield Maritime Museum reviews
What a great educational place to take the family! This free (donations greatly appreciate) museum has a lot of exhibit for any age. From my couple years of stopping in, the museum always has rotating exhibits and currently (Aug 2019) have some really interesting exhibits outside! This place also has really good parking down by the water! Pack a picnic and take the family there for some fun!
Nice small museum. Lots of information about fishing and shipping in this area, plus the volunteers are great to chat with, they know a lot. Super nice space. The sea lamprey in the tank was very ugly and a good way to drive home the impact these non-native species are having on these waters. And it's free!
