The proud maritime heritage of the Upper Peninsula is completely captured in this museum that, in some ways, almost comes across as a shrine to a by-gone era. Boats of every kind including steam barges, Mackinacs, fishing tugs, and canoes used by pioneer fur trappers, are all presented in wonderful detail. There are also loads of displays and exhibits crammed with maritime hardware such as ship's wheels, propellers and anchors. The tour through the museum is all self-guided. Timings for some days may vary, please call ahead.
