  • We were surprised about all the history that was in Sandusky area and Lake Erie. Had no idea. Exhibits were well done and thoroughly enjoyed this museum.

  • Really cool museum full of great exhibits! I would recommend a visit if you are in the Sandusky area. A family pass is only $19 and it goes to a great cause! Has a little of something for everyone and its "hands on" for the kids!
  • Lovely small museum about the history of the Sandusky Bay. The exhibits are informative and interesting. There is a scavenger hunt for kids which my 7 year old granddaughter especially enjoyed. I like the display which teaches knot tying. Well worth the price of admission.
  • This is a charming museum. There is plenty of memorabilia and displays that will delight and entertain all ages. We especially enjoyed the life sized Battleship game devoted to the battle of Lake Erie from the war of 1812.
  • This was a fun little excursion for the family. Had stuff for the adults and had stuff for the kids. Loved the oversized battleship. I learned a lot from this trip. Definitely recommend it.
  • Admission prices are a bargain, for what you get to see. Interactive displays and interactive workstations for kids as well. We were there for the presentation & demonstration of the Sandusky Coal Docks scale model. Much info on Sandusky role in maritime history, but plenty info on Great Lakes boating, shipping, warfare, ship building, ice harvesting and fishing. Staff are very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. 3 buildings of things to look at and learn about. Very family oriented place to go, even on a limited budget.
