  • This is a small museum, and obviously dedicated to the maritime industries. That being said, the information was interesting, the staff was helpful and we learned a lot about fishing on the Apostles. ...  more »

  • The history of fishing and the boats that worked the waters of Lake Superior is told with photos and antiques you can get up close and personal with. Walk around the nets, the boats, the fishing float...  more »

  • 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!
