It was very interesting to visit the Museum Ship Valley Camp. It was a definite experience to tour the ship. There was an aquarium on board as well as many Edmund Fitzgerald artifacts. We enjoyed learning about how freighters operate and how the sailors who sailed on them lived.

We loved touring this ship. It was so nice to get a chance to be onboard a large freighter. It is very well maintained with lots of displays. Well worth taking the time to visit.

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!!!
