This museum is mainly just videos on TVs but very educational. You do need to walk though the pizza shop to get to the stairs to the museum.

Learn about how the bridge was made and anything/everything to do with the bridge is found here. Better for older children.

Don't get this free little gem confused with the gift shop-museum under the actual bridge. This musem is over a pizza shop on the main shopping strip. The museum is free and is open when the pizza shop is open. The attraction is worth your time and free! If you are needing a free attraction to keep the vacation in... More

Viewing the little museum on top of Mama Mia's Pizza is part of the Mackinaw experience. The pizza is marginal and the museum is a work in process. The film is excellent and you can view it while waiting for your Pie. Not great ... but like I said, 'a tradition!'

Learn how the bridge was built. This museum has lots of photos of the bridge under construction, as well as a great view of the bridge itself.

I've literally passed over the Mackinac Bridge hundreds of times in my life, and had no idea of the manpower, investment, time, and dedication it took to make this 5 mile long bridge a reality. We too had thought the memories and artifacts from the crew that participated in this massive undertaking had been destroyed in the fire that consumed... More

After the fire a couple of years ago when the original museum was lost, I was grateful to see it has been restored. Many new artifacts displayed with good presentation although some of the previous keepsakes were missing and cannot be duplicated. But, well done and so important to preserve the memories of our great bridge. Its free, so everyone... More
