  • Fun small museum of maritime history. It was really slow on a day right after Christmas when we visited, so I enjoyed getting to fully appreciate all the sites. My favorites were the exhibit on ships' mascots/dogs, the interactive piloting simulator, and the authentic submarine telescope that gave you a full 360 degree view of the town out the museum roof. The stained glass windows were also lovely.
  • Very interesting exhibits. Wide variety. I'll have to come back in the summer to see the boats.
  • Outstanding night for a seasonal fundraiser. Pleasant staff, nice selection of finger food, great company. And of course there's the museum itself. Amy and crew do a wonderful job of telling Sturgeon Bay's and the Great Lakes maritime history. A modern facility with lots to learn for all ages.
  • Amazing display of local history! We are very lucky to have such a precious gem in our community!
  • Pretty cool place. Fairly recent renovations and improvements. Lots of history n the Great Lakes... well revealed at this museum. Worth a stop for history or marine buffs.
