  • Very nice maritime history of the area. It's free with a place for donation. We gave $5 for out group of 5. This stop is a 5 to 10 min walk from the main areas of Bayfield. So it's worth the time to take a quick tour and take in the history. Total Time in the museum will take you as little as 10 mins to 1 hour if you read everything. Conclusion: it's worth a stop and it's free.
  • Worth the visit if you're strolling around in Bayfield. Interesting section on fishing traps, shipwrecks, knots and boat building. Look for a tiny wooden boats maker shop just behind the museum!
  • Alittle bit of history and info.
  • Open Seasonally: Weekends in June, Weekdays until Labor Day, Weekends in September. Great little museum!
