Launching a Legacy Capital Campaign
The Michigan Maritime Museum is on the threshold of a transformative opportunity.
As the anchor of South Haven’s Maritime District, the Museum has established itself over the past four decades as not only a leader in the preservation of Michigan’s Great Lakes maritime heritage, but also a center for education, research and enrichment. Its professionally curated land-side exhibits, combined with on-water experiences offered on a licensed fleet of authentic period vessels, has made it a one-of-a-kind destination asset for the City of South Haven and the greater West Michigan region. But the Museum’s ability to grow, to expand its impact, maximize its mission, meet growing visitor demand, and keep South Haven’s harbor an authentic, living representation of Great Lakes maritime culture, has been constrained by its space-limited campus…until now.
With the recent acquisition of adjoining property, the former Jensen’s Fishery, the Michigan Maritime Museum has a once-in-a-generation opportunity to double the size of its campus and take its strategic vision to the next level.
The Launching a Legacy Campaign now underway. The journey continues with you.
