Great maritime history of the Great Lakes especially the car railroad ferry systems. Housed in the old coast guard station it’s full of information on the area. The interactive steer the badger is great fun. Nice gift shop

Priced a little high for what you get, but had some nice stuff. lighthouse models and a huge panarama model of the area were neat. like facts and models about the badger. had a bunch of model ships.

If you're into this you can spend a couple of hours studying the exhibits and talking to the. employees and volunteers. They will probably have time to give you their undivided attention. Steer a Lake Michigan car ferry into Ludington harbor. To a history buff like myself, that all these archives have survived mishaps, shipwrecks, and time, is amazing. his is an excellent museum.

Rainy day plus advice from our B&B hostess made this destination something we hadn't planned on. But what a nice surprise! Wondered if the $11 adult entry fee would be worth it, but it definitely was. Interesting exhibits, a couple interactive experiences, lots of history about the great lakes, ferries, coast guard, shipwrecks, lighthouses, maritime technology movie, lighthouse and wooden ship models and a souvenir shop. We decided to forego a planned trip later that week to the shipwreck museum 6 hours away in the UP simply because this visit satisfied our curiosity about similar topics. Great for adults and kids.

We have just loved walking through the very informative exhibitions of this museum. We enjoyed the "real life steering" of the boat (interactive game) and the beautifully laid out exhibitions.
