“Arrrrr Matie!!!!!!!!!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

If you need to learn about LAke Erie than this is the place!!!!
The collection is very vast! ALso some of the displays are hands on so you can have lots of fun! Pretend you are a PIRATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A word of warning though, the books for sale at the front door are over priced! I found the books much less in Port Rowan at the Lighthouse store on the main drag!

“a hidden gem!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

when the town of port dover is hot (or cold), and overflowing with biker enthusiasts, tourists and as always, way too many police types on a friday the 13th gathering, this little museum is cozy, friendly and accommodating!! it's very well air conditioned and another friendly place with welcoming people!!

“Kids loved it on a rainy day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

How many museums do your kids want to return to? Well, after taking my girls to Port Dover Harbour Museum on a rainy afternoon, they said they wanted to go back again.Exhibits are fun; lots of hands on stuff. It's a quaint, small museum with character and facts. Curator offered some opinions on Lake Erie monsters for my youngest daughter. She was so happy!!
