“Located upstairs of the Mama Mia Pizza”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Loved the aroma of pizza as we toured the museum. Enjoyed the story of the building of the bridge and the brave men and women who dared work in a very dangerous situation.
We found plenty to see and return again to try the pizza.

If you are interested in learning about the building of the Mackinac Bridge from start to finish, this is the place to go! Very interesting information and a great way to remember those who gave their lives while building the bridge.

“the Mackinaw city Michigan Area”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

looking for a georgeous location no matter what time of year? this is worth the trip from anywhere in the US.
the Splendor of the Bridge itself, combined with the OLD Town tourism of the downtown locaiton is really neat.
Mackinaw island is also a terrific trip back into the past.
come in the summer !!

“Fire destroyed so much, just ok now”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Many years ago, the Bridge Museum was so cool but the fire destroyed so many of the artifacts forcing them to "recreate" alot of what was. Not too many originals of anything. Especially all the helmets/hats/clothing that was worn during the build. Most of what is now hanging up is not authentic. But they don't claim it to be, I don't think. The movie theater is still entertaining and it's free. Can't beat that. Now, there are alot more trinkets to buy and games to play upstairs and not that much about the bridge. The owners can't help what the fire took away but what little that remains is still pretty neat.
