A terrific museum regarding the Great Lakes history. Many relics from Great Lakes shipwrecks as you might expect. This museum would interest anyone who has lived near the great lakes states or Canada.

The younger kids had a scavenger hunt and seek and find in the museum. It was interesting looking at the displays. A local man was captain of sub in pacific and the museum had a battle display of what he did in the battle of Leyte (spelling) Gulf. There is a lighthouse tour there to take also.

There were a few interesting items, however the majority was the same as in every maritime museum. I've been to better ones. The lighthouse was very disappointing. I'm a lighthouse enthusiast and this one was not restored since it was last used in the 1970's and had very little in it. The guide was a beginner who had not done... More

Stopped by on our way home. Weather was bad so we could not take the lighthouse tour. Was able to get some nice photos though. Nice place. We will be back.

Enjoyed this tiny museum very much. We love history and the information on various aspects of maritime happenings on the Great Lakes. Well worth the time.

The staff here is top notch and will gladly help you learn about the great Marquette maritime tradition. The lighthouse tour is a must. This represents a wonderful aspect of American history that should always be preserved.

Small but packed with local artifacts including very informative film and many local photos. Be sure to take the optional lighthouse tour if available to view on-going restoration efforts.

A little small but great place to spend a few hours while in the area. Very knowledgeable staff. Great place to do some research about maritime events in the area. Light house area was great to see. Nice grounds by the lake.

We learned a lot about the area at this museum. They have 3 of the most beautiful Fresnel lens on display. We were not able to go to the light house because of the restoration work that was going on. I think they could have decreased the fee because of this.

My friend and I stopped in here on a rainy morning while visiting Marquette. The museum was very kid-friendly, and we learned so much!
