  • A rainy, blustery day in Sturgeon Bay, perfect for spending time at the museum! The exhibits are well thought out and interesting. There's even a working periscope you can use to see 360 degree views ...  more »

  • Went here with my husband so much history and interactive stuff to do there. And also you can take a tug boat tour and a ride on a Chicago fire boat. Its a cool place to go and learn about the area.
  • Good for all ages. Nice folks good displays. You could visit for a whole day if you add the outside and tug boats.
  • Wonderful Maritime museum. Plenty of interactive exhibits. I especially liked the simulator in which you captain a freighter through the Sturgeon Bay canal.
  • Good museum lots to look at tug boat ride is $3 more and well worth it. General admission is $10
  • If you are interested in the maritime history of Door County 5 stars, 4 stars for landlubbers. Take the tug tour.
