  • Excellent museum for adults and kids alike. The ship was so fun for walk around on and IN. You can actually go inside the cargo hold! We had to rush through the museum, as we cam late in the day, but it was pretty cool. Definitely worth a trip back. They are updating a park next to the museum, so summer '23 should be a great time to visit. Then goto Maumee Bay brewery for lunch 😁
  • Great museum, larger than I expected. Lots of great artifacts and exhibits. The lake freighter tour was awesome. We loved that it is self-directed and self-paced. Staff could have been more engaged, but otherwise, this was a great stop.
