One of the best and largest maritime museums I've been to. They do a fantastic job of educating us while honoring the legacy of great lakes shipping. Beautiful location. Don't miss their sister attraction, the Tower of History across the street.
This big, beautiful old oreboat holds a special place in my heart. I can't stop taking pictures of her!! Take the full tour. You can go "up top" all the way to the pilot house, and all the way down into the holds. (Kinda creepy, but in a good way.) The museum displays are very interesting and the chewed up lifeboats of the Edmund Fitzgerald always bring me to tears. Love this place and all the memories she helps us to hold on to. Please, please, always take care of her. She is an absolute treasure. 💕
