A fun activity for all ages for not very much money

This is a nice museum - on of the best local history museums around. My kids are teens now and still like popping in for a look around.

For those who like historical museums, this is a great spot. In addition to a 4-season diorama featuring local taxidermy, the museum is packed with artifacts reflecting the historical life of Door County.

History of Door county told in all kinds of donated artifacts and stories. I loved it and so did my husband.

Nice museum with birds, and a lot of old artefacts and history. Worth a visit for 1-2 hours. It is free, but donations are welcome.

Nice small museum with lots of history. Great way to spend a day learning the history of the area. Kids really enjoy this museum especially the fire trucks.

This is a small but lovely museum dedicated to early Door County. You will spend at least hour and you should give it a look.

We have lived here since 2008 and have always just driven past this pretty stone building....but some cousins came to down and they wanted to go. If you love Door County you will enjoy spending an hour or so here...staff if friendly...there are two floors of exhibits. Good for all ages.

This is my second trip to the museum. It is wonderful to see the history of the area seen through the eyes of the ship building industry.

This is a wonderful museum with well-organized exhibits and awesome photo displays. Unfortunately, our tour schedule limited the available time for a self-tour to 1-hour, so we did not have the time to admire all of the exhibits. Highly recommend.
