This is an informative museum about the construction of the Mackinac Bridge located upstairs in Mama Mia's Pizza. And it's free! The restaurant had a fire some years back which was unfortunate because they lost some artifacts from the museum. But fortunately they did rebuild...More

Loved learning about the Bridge. Being from MI I loved seeing and hearing all the history about how the bridge came to be. The video shown was great telling how it all happened. I will go back and take my kids!

The museum is on a 2nd floor over a pizza place. As I understand it, most everything was destroyed by a fire and could not be replaced. There is an interesting old movie about the building of the bridge. However, the sound was frequently interrupted...More
