This run by the Army Corps of Engineers. Free admission, an excellent presentation of the history of maritime on the Great Lakes. Great place to view boats going in and out of the Duluth ship canal.

This is perhaps the best maritime museum on the Great Lakes. It offers insight into shipwrecks as well as operations of modern day ore boats. It also depicts compelling stories of individuals who lost their lives on the Great Lakes. You can't beat free, either.

Besides the fact that it's free, this is a great little museum and viewing area for the aerial bridge. Lot's of info on the history of the Great Lakes and the ships that sailed them. I really liked the fact they had the schedule of all the ships coming in, posted everywhere. Luckily we arrived just as a ship was coming in! This is a must when in Duluth

Lake Superior is a dangerous place, especially in November... but that's never stopped it being a major nexus of cargo shipping. The Maritime Visitor Center walks you through the history and engineering involved in cargo shipping, and if some of the exhibits are a bit dated in design, they are still informative and often fascinating. Worth the time.
