“A must for history buffs”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

This museum is just perfect for a rainy day in Door County. It has something for everyone, even little ones. Grandparents can show their grnadkids so many things they had as a child.

Check out the videos too.

“Interesting History”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

some counties are just plain not that interesting...Door is far from that! The shipping canal dredging in the 1880's is my favorite!

“Full of Door County history”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

We always check out local historical museums when traveling, and this is probably the best one we've ever been in. Beautiful wildlife display and tons of interesting displays with easy-to-read information. We spent a few hours. It's free, but we dropped a little cash in their donation box.

“Great Museum & free”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

This museum was a lot of fun to walk through and there is no charge. My 16-yr old daughter and I went and spent about an 1 hour there. The animal display is great & there's a lot of history about the area. Very close to Maritime Museum. Definitely a place to visit if you're in the area.

“Very interesting and surprised it was a free to visit”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

We stopped here because we were in the area and read that it was free to visit. I was surprised at how much was on display in the museum. It was very interesting and my 8 month old daughter loved sitting in the fire truck and looking at all the items. The animal display in the entryway was very impressive and was my personal favorite display.
