The Museum Ship
Jun to Sep - 11:00 AM to 07:00 PM
The magic of this museum is that it is on the Camp Valley, an actual 11,500-ton ship that has been converted into a gallery of Lake Superior maritime history. Penciled in on the register of National Historic Places, it allows visitors to explore an actual lake freighter and see the pilothouse, eating quarters, and where its ore shipments were stored. A memorial and exhibit to the doomed Edmund Fitzgerald, which was made famous in song, is a must stop. And, in a bit or irony, the ship also houses five aquariums full of fish indigenous to Lake Superior. September and October times may vary, please call ahead.
Admission: USD8 adults; USD4 kids (6-16).
