We visited the memorial in summer on a clear day and could see all of the surrounding islands and all the way to Canada. This memorial commemorates a little know piece of American history but a critical one. After visiting the memorial and it's great visitor center you realize that if it weren't for Admiral Perry we would all be... More

I was thrilled to learn about the battles that were fought on the Great Lakes. The exhibits are informative and well thought out. The gift shop had many things that were reasonably priced and collectable. I look forward to going back. Four Stars!

The elevator ride up is long and the attendant is a Park Ranger whom gives you a history lesson on your way up. The view in top is spectacular! You can see all of Put In Bay and the lake view is beautiful. There are Park Rangers on top as well to answer any question you have about the monument... More

We enjoy taking the older ferry off Catawba Island then renting a bike and visiting the Memorial and the Winery. It is a great day spent on the island!. It is better to avoid weekends if you want to avoid the college party crowd.

excellent presentation of this historic area. Very clean, very family oriented. Many facts presented that we were not aware of. Go to the top of the monument, very cool.
