  • We made a return visit to the Maritime Museum because I especially wanted to see the views from the new tower. A short video prior to taking the elevator up to the top provides a nice introduction...

  • Very informative and interesting. Lot's of Historical Information. Actual exhibits you could touch and walk thru. Also souvenirs available. They also had a silent auction going on.

  • At the time of posting this review (April 2022), not all floors of the tower have been completed yet. We were able to see the top floor of the tower and two additional tower floors, along with the two floors of the main museum area. Every time we stop by (a few times per year) we are happy to see the museum grow and change. The tower exhibits are both informative and interactive; I am impressed with the use of technology and artifacts to make a story fully come to life. Even as adults we had a great time trying out every interactive part of the exhibit. The tower exhibits are a bit small, but they utilize their space very well. We cannot wait to return later in the year to see what else will be new to explore!
  • So much to see! Fascinating history of shipbuilding, the lighthouses, the lake... Leave a couple of hours to see it all well. Cute gift shop. We were there for the Christmas trees. Making time to go again next for the same event
