  • Be sure to allot at least two hours for your visit here. Tour the boats first and read all of the historical information posted inside them. Then proceed to the museum which is well thought out and...  more »
  • A great look at the history of the Great Lakes and ships on the water in the Midwest. The Boyer is an interesting showcase and I can see the lure of life on board.  more »

  • This place is wonderful! We enjoyed touring the tugboat and the ship, and inside the museum we spent lots of time looking at the many exhibits. There were tons of interactive things in this museum that made it especially interesting for my husband and myself, and also for our 10 year old son. I wish we had had more time to spend there!
  • A great museum for any fan of the Great Lakes or maritime history. The boats are awesome. The price was worth the ticket for admission, and I think kids of all ages will have fun here and adults as well. They have some unisex bathrooms and a nice little gift shop. When in Toledo, it is a must visit.
