Despite not having a personal connection to the Great Lakes region, the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald always piqued my interest. So when I discovered the Mather, a somewhat similar ship, I knew I had to visit. It was very cool to walk the ship, there really wasn’t any area that you couldn’t access. The views or Lake Erie were great. They did have a directional system on the floor that you are supposed to follow, and at some point it kinda got my a little off track, but it’s definitely worth a stop. My visit was in Aug 2017, and at the time you did not need to buy tickets to the nearby science museum to access the Mather, despite the affiliation. Not sure if that has changed.

Unexpectedly, most family members enjoyed this more than other museums. Interesting view of inside a laker. Hot and lots of stairs, but they warn you before you pay. Affordable at $9.00, took a good hour, and some good photo ops. A nostalgic trip down memory lane with some of the time period furniture.

We were headed to another state but wanted a stopping point to get out and stretch our legs. The walk along the pier was gorgeous and it just sits right next to the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame too. The ship was a neat attraction. It's a self guided tour so you can take as much or as little time as you want. Most of the ship is accessible. You see all the captains and crew quarters. The sheer size of the engine room was amazing. The galley is huge and to think of cooking for 25 men. The flagship was neat to see. We visited with our young teenagers and they enjoyed wandering the ship and seeing everything.

Nice little exhibit area inside the ship, with history of the lake and shipping, environmental information, and a nie exhibit on the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. The tour is self-guided. I was surprised to find out they sometimes carried passengers and had some nice rooms for them. The middle of the ship was one big storage area for whatever they were transporting. You walk along the top of the ship to the back where there are more accommodations, engine room, etc. I wasn't expecting much, but it was so interesting that the next thing I knew we'd been there almost two hours. Really a worthwhile visit.
