  • 4.5 stars! I've always wanted to sail on an iron boat, but this'll probably be as close as I get to it. Fascinating exhibits, and I loved just wandering throughout the boat. The Great Lakes aquarium was a nice touch. Highly recommend!
  • They have a type of fact hunt sheet that you can get. Made us look a little harder at things and made it fun for the littlier ones. Discounts for other places also.
  • Great museum, lots of artifacts and information. It keeps my children entertained for hours. Great for all ages
  • I've been here several times and enjoy it every time. Lots of in depth information aboit Great Lakes shipping. Wonderful!
  • Awesome little museum located within an old freighter. You can see all parts of the freighter from the engine room to the sleeping quarters. It's pretty cool. Not too expensive either.
