Located upstairs in the pizza place it's a good way to spend your time while your meal is prepared. They have a loudspeaker that announces your meal when ready. There is an elevator for disabled access and the entire building is accessible. There is no cost, so that is hard to beat and you can learn a lot about the... More

Was our first time crossing this bridge and I myself don't like bridges but we have watched how this bridge was made and we salute the men that constructed this bridge and to the ones that maintain it. I do think that the price should come down on it though. I believe it is being used as a tourist trap.

It seemed a little strange walking through a restaurant to see a museum, but I have done stranger things. The video of the history and build of the bridge is great. Very informative. The rest of the museum was fun to see the stuff there. I thank the person who keeps up this museum. I wish we had stopped for... More

Since the museum is on the second floor, you have to walk to the back of the dining area and climb some stairs. But there's an interesting video about the building of the bridge, and there's artifacts that you won't see anywhere else in Mackinaw City. So it's certainly worth some slight hassle to get to this free exhibit. The... More

This is such a unique bridge. It is also pretty when lit at night. When driving over, you can look down through the road and see the lake underneath.

Be sure to go to the Lighthouse park area and wait for the bridge to light up. Plus, you can catch the sunset, It is a bridge, what can you say. Also, cool when the fog is rolling over the top half. Our trip was June of 2014 but could not get this to let me put that in.

We loved that we could go up to this museum after we finished our dinner at Mama Mias! It's free and the screening room with the movie about the bridge was super cool. Lots to look at!

Sharing the learning of the history of the bridge with a first time visitor to the area was incredible. And frankly, I learned more than I used to know as a child (who didn't pay attention). The bridge is amazing and I hope it lasts forever! Can't get enough of it!

Been over it a hundred times and its always interesting. Boats going thru, views across the bay, weird weather and of course the gridded road lanes. If you are worried, I am told that they will drive your car over whilst you sit in it, eyes closed. How friendly is that?
