I was 15 when the Edmund Fitzgerald was lost. It was interesting and meaningful to visit the museum and view the bell and display that relate to the wreck. The entire exhibit was fascinating, educational, and well presented on the history of the Great Lake shipwrecks. I would recommend a visit.

The historical timeline of shipwrecks over the past centuries. Seeing how ships managed in the 1800’s to late 1900’s. There is much information on the Edmund Fitzgerald. Also very informative about lighthouse keepers equipment used and how they lived. There is a fee. My husband is a veteran and received a military discount. There is a gift shop on the premises with a wide selection of items. Be sure to walk out to the beach area.

They have gone to great lengths to display several sizes of lighthouse lamp lenses. They have parts of recovered wrecks and displays about the diving experience used to recover some of them. Theu have displays of several shipwrecks inclufing models of the ships. They also have one corner of the museum devoted to the wreck of the Edmund Fitzderald which is very detailed.
