Interesting, interactive museum with things to see on the outside as well as the inside. One year we didn't have any cash on us to donate and this was not an issue at all.

We were looking to kill a little time and discovered this place. If you are interested in the history of great lakes fishing & Port Dover, be sure to check it out. The admission is a donation so it's a great value.
