DCMM Expanding Shipwrecks Exhibit

The Door County Maritime Museum is promoting the expansion of its Shipwrecks of Door County exhibit with help from a $31,382 Joint Effort Marketing Grant from the Wisconsin Department of Tourism. After the exhibit’s successful debut in 2018, the museum has added artifacts, advanced technology and other upgrades to enhance visitors’ education about Wisconsin shipwrecks. The exhibit, which will be on display until Dec. 31, 2020, features original shipwreck artifacts, historical photographs, underwater videos, interactive displays and more. Last year, it increased museum visits by almost 3,000 guests, and the expansion is expected to increase patron visits by 2,000 to reach 20,000 total visitors in 2019, generating an estimated $1.9 million in visitor spending in the area.
