Inside this great maritime museum, 20th century technology is on display in the S.S. Valley Camp's engine room and pilot house. As you walk through the engine room, be sure to take note of one of the few remaining triple expansion steam engines. Step into the crew's quarter's to get a feel for their living accommodations. Picture yourself at the ship's wheel as you tour the pilot house. Take a moment and imagine life at the helm!

Other exhibits inside this maritime museum, visitors can learn about the Great Lakes, the shipping industry, the Soo Locks, and a memorial and exhibit to the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald and her crew. This memorial includes two (2) lifeboats from the sinking of the Fitzgerald. These lifeboats are the largest pieces of wreckage that were recovered.

  • A fun rainy day activity! A great lakes cargo ship that has been transformed into a museum. See the engine room, cargo holds and crew quarters. There's even has an aquarium on board! Our kids loved exploring the ship!
