  • Great staff and wonderful exhibits... learning experience for young people and adults. We attended the fourth of July Thunder Bay Maritime Festival. Free games and face painting, rock wall, and kid slide , great for grandkids, with Maritime and Folk music for well known artists. Cardboard boat regata, and more... Be sure to attend..
  • This is the best place to take people from outside of Alpena. This place is unique and interesting in a way that a lot of people love. It's free to enter. For people who don't grow up on the water this place is an eye opener. I brought a close friend from downstate here and he was amazed of all the things that are under the water. When we walked in he didn't know what a ROV was and by the end he wanted one. Its great fun.
  • The artifacts recovered from the shipwrecks around thunder bay and the history behind some of the ships was amazing to learn about. Growing up in Alpena I knew there were many wrecks out there, but this place really opened up my eyes to see how many there really is. Unbelievable!
  • I had a great time watching the documentaries.Comfortable atmosphere knowledgeable and friendly staff.
  • This is a very neat place to visit. The indoor ship is really cool!!!
