  • Ashamed to admit I never toured this boat in the 23 years I lived in Duluth! My kid finally dragged me and it was completely worth it! The historic importance of this ship and its groundbreaking innovations in propulsion and steering is interesting, and the beautiful fixtures in the guest quarters are both worth checking out.
  • I loved this museum. The tour guides we very informative and great to talk to. I learned many new things about the Minnesota shipping industry. Absolutely a must for anyone interested in the industrial build up of America... this tour is not for anyone who has difficulty walking, steps or ladders. The steps are more like ladders than steps.
