  • The maritime museum houses many objects and photos. Lake Superior is busy, there were accidents, there were lifeboats and lighthouses. In the museum also has a marqette of the docs, the place where the ore is loaded in large cargo ships. An excursion to the nearby Lighthouse is also a possibility. The museum is also suitable for children, they should be the English language.

  • The historical value is so well documented, very interesting, and our grandkids loved the scavenger hunt. So they had a great time learning the history of shipping in our great lakes. If you're looking for something to do in the Marquette area, put this on your list.
  • It's a fantastic place. They have a good selection of items for both kids and adults alike.
  • Very nice little museum, very clean and well lit. One of the few places this far north with air conditioning!
  • Very wonderful little museum. Lots of artifacts and tons or things to read about the local maritime experience.
  • Awesome exhibit on McClintock Darter-Dace, love the periscope!
