“Great Museum and FREE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

There are not many museums these days that are free, but this one is! We learned so much about many types of boats, about boats that sank, how important these vessels are to the economy, the weather in the Great Lakes, as well as wonderful information about the Great Lakes and Lake Superior. I thought I knew about shipping on the Great Lakes, but I know SO much more now! You will not regret the time spent visiting this museum!
