The museum is packed full of fishing, shipwreck and historical artifacts. Many photos of Port Dover line the walls and dishes and artifacts salvaged from the Steamer Atlantic are incredible. The young lady on staff who pointed out highlights of the museum is very knowledgable and was very attentive to all the visitors. The museum is free with only a donation being requested. I would comment that for a small town museum it is exceptionally interesting and well decorated with many historical items.

I'm a nautical nut. I could spend days in this place with all kinds of nautical items on display. There is even an actual old fishing boat about 50' long and a ships wheel house.. You'll love it!

We wandered in not sure what to expect and then spent ove an hour in this this small museum. It really brings to life the influcence of the Lake on the people & the local economy, and gives one a real feeling for the Lake culture. Well worth a viist.
Admission by donation.
