  • First rate Lake Erie/Sandusky Bay historical venue. Great physical exhibits as well as a great gift shop with a nice variety of local printed history books, and knowledgeable staff. I would highly recommend visiting.
  • I worked in the area as a deck hand for a decade... I had never gone. I never expected much out of it. Recently one of the boatlines I worked for held a reunion here.... I was really impressed. It's small, but there was a lot more to see and read about than I was expecting. Also had great little interactive area for kids.
  • I wish there were guided tours available. I enjoy a learning experience.
  • It's great because it shows a lot of nautical history and how it has changed over the years
  • It is just a building with a marry-go-round in it that they charge way to much to see.

Where to stay in Sandusky

Most of the accommodations in Sandusky are clustered around Castaway Bay to the east of downtown. From here, it's a quick drive up to Cedar Point Amusement Park, and you'll find plenty of hotels, motels, and campgrounds. Some establishments offer packages that include tickets to the park. The options in the historical downtown remain more limited, but a couple of charming inns and bed and breakfasts take you away from the bustle of the places that accommodate park-goers. Regardless of where you choose to stay, make reservations as far in advance as possible if you plan to visit during summer.
