We had been to the museum before but went back for their WW II exhibit about the Great Lakes and its role in the war. It was well done and informative. Staff was exceptional!

We loved this museum. It isn't too small or too big. Everything was very interesting both inside and out. We also took a tour on the Lindy Lou which included the museum admission . Fantastic place for all ages.

Very interesting. Worth it for a small museum. We were disappointed that our Friend Good Will sailing got cancelled due to mechanical problems, but they refunded our money and gave us free admission to the museum.

We walked in at 10am. Bought the pass and the tall ship excursion. I recommend the boat ride. The museum was very interesting. We were there 1.5hours plus another 1.5 for the boat ride. Staff very friendly

Did the Museum and Friends Good Will sunset cruise and couldn't have been more pleased. The ships Captain and crew couldn't have been nicer, more informative or entertaining. Well worth the visit.

Quick trip to the past to see ships. Not a huge amount to see, but you view some history. Biggest attraction is to board the old sail ship and view the deck and lower one as well. Nice to chat with the in character staff...More
