“A Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012 via mobile

I didn't have high expectations for a small, local museum. I was wrong. This is a very nicely laid-out and informative venue. I learned a lot about Bay County and had a good time. The ladies on staff were very helpful and very informative. This was a very pleasant way to spend a couple of hours.

“Good place for local historical research”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

I went there to do some historical research on my ancestors. They have a nice small library of maritime books, particularly of the Great Lakes, and books the local area. Including some old books dating back to the 1920s and earlier. I even found a book that I had checked out of the local public ibrary 30 years ago that is now in this library.

The staff was very helpful.
