Our family just loved this museum. The favorite part being the Edmund Fitzgerald artifacts. The littlest one loved the aquarium. The views from this ship are tremendous also. The only thing I wish they had had was a small stroller for the little one as we forgot ours. Otherwise wouldn't change a thing!

My wife, I, and two kids toured this ship and we thought it was great. There was lots of hands on things for the kids to see and do. The aquariums had fish indigenous to Lake Superior and we loved the Edmund Fitzgerald pictures and artifacts. The kids thought that the place would never end... My wife and I loved it as well and if we have a chance to get back there, we certainly will!!!

This museum would benefit from having tour guides, but you can get a good self tour by reading the signs posted at each exhibit. There is a scavenger hunt if you have children with you, but you must ask for the information at the desk. The best exhibit was on the Edmund Fitzgerald sinking, they have a really good movie about the ship. Do tour the outside and top of the ship, the view is wonderful. Allow at least two hours to tour the ship.

Ship is nicely portrayed, well kept.No docents so once your past the admission booth you are pretty much on your own. Admission is a bit pricey. Adjacent giftshop used to have an outstanding maritime book selection, now not so much. Gift shop slid badly a few years back but has rebounded.
