  • Okay, the Door County Maritime Museum gets all the publicity, but this little Historical Museum, right downtown, is really special. You walk in the door and the first room is dominated by a huge...

  • When I worked as a summer camp counselor (and when I was a kid myself), this was always a favorite. There’s a beautiful forest depiction with taxidermy when you first walk in that shows wildlife in all of the seasons in Door County. But beyond that, there’s a little Main Street downstairs with a phone booth and postal counter, and exhibits upstairs that include fishing and cherry picking. I think everyone’s favorite is probably the fire trucks and jail cell though. Thank you for always being so welcoming and helping so many people learn about beautiful Door County.
  • Great place to go if you love history. It also has a nature display by a world reknowned artist and it's free.
