Make History Come Alive!

From hands-on exhibits on our authentic waterfront campus to historically immersive experiences aboard our on-water fleet, the Michigan Maritime Museum has something for every Great Lakes enthusiast.  

Step into the role of an early Michigan sailor aboard tall ship Friends Good Will, salute the brave men and women of the United States Coast Guard in our Coast Guard boat house, or simply sit and enjoy the bustling harbor from our docks located in the heart of South Haven’s Maritime District. The Michigan Maritime Museum is one of the Great Lakes premiere destinations to experience freshwater maritime heritage as you explore our exhibits both on and off the water.

Five separate structures offer a variety of engaging opportunities for the Museum visitor, including permanent and changing exhibits on Michigan maritime history, a workshop for the teaching boat-building and related maritime skills, and a fleet of period and replica vessels available to visitors for on-water experiences. Waterfront festivals and events are complemented by a quaint harbor atmosphere in one of west Michigan’s most picturesque shoreline communities.
