We were fascinated by the displays. It is well worth the time to visit.

This area also has an excellent display nearby managed the the U.S. Corps of Engineers. Also nearby is a lock where you may be able to see a 1,000 foot freighter pass.

Highly recommendt this museum - right next to the Duluth pier with a great view of the lift bridge. Plus, it's totally free! Take the family. It's fun to check when ships arrive/depart, what load they're carrying, and what country they are from. We enjoyed the topographic maps and both floors have a lot to offer. If you need to get out of the wind and cold, the 2nd floor has a great vew of the harbor and the lift bridge.

The best maritime museum on Lake Superior by far. Plan to spend some time here. Different 30 minute movies playing all day. Handy spot to locate and watch the freighters coming and going through the port.
