Lesson of history
Oct 2021
The whole visit was very informative. It was great occasion to see the biggest icebreaker in US history.
From the far it doesn't look big, but since you step on its deck, you see how big this "toy" is. I was amazed by the size of engines. Three engine rooms and two engines in each were giving about 12,000 horse power for its three propellers.
Walking through the entire vessel, we could see almost every important areas: Kitchen, hospital, bedrooms, communication room, the main deck engine room, mesa and many more....
There were also people ready to answer any question from tourists regarding the icebreaker.
The weather was not so great at the day of our visit, so the pictures are kind of "gray".
If you are in Mackinaw City area, do not miss the opportunity!
I recommend it.

Nice Museum Ship
Jun 2021
I've been on a lot of Museum Ships and the Icebreaker is a pretty good one. It's not huge, so you don't need to take a lot of time to do it, but what you do walk through is nicely done. We didn't spend much time up on the deck as the Midge Flies were terrible during our visit, but all the other areas were good. There is an onboard gift shop if you like that sort of thing. I always get a refrigerator magnet and they had a booklet about the ship that I bought.
The ticket booth is up by the road and there is a bit of a walk back to the ship, so be aware of that.

Reminds me of all the time I spent in the Navy. At least it's not bouncing all over.

An Amazing Experience
Sep 2021 • Family
This is an amazing place to visit. We went today and took our children, ages 5 - 13, and they loved it. It was nice that we were able to tour the entire place on our own and at our own pace. I would definitely suggest going.

Self Guided Tour
Jun 2021
This is a very worthwhile tour. It is self guided so you can take as little or as much time as you want. There are docents available to ask questions. There is plenty of signage to explain things. Watch the various videos that also explains things.

This was so informative and interesting. I had no idea the ice was so thick and this beauty could rip right through it! We love our coast guard.

A must!
Sep 2020
This was a self guided tour that explains everything about this huge retired icebreaker. It shows how they make a path for the freighters through the very thick ice. We seen everything from the hull all the way up to the bridge. There were video’s explaining along the way. There’s a lot of stairs to climb.
