The Door County Maritime Museum has launched its largest fundraising campaign since the construction of its waterfront museum in Sturgeon Bay nearly 20 years ago. Calling it a “major step forward,” the museum is expanding its Sturgeon Bay facility with a one-of-a-kind 11-story tower that will serve both as an observation platform for the community’s stunning harbor as well as additional space for an array of state-of-the-art exhibits for all ages.
The campaign, Reaching New Heights in Our Maritime Heritage, will ultimately produce an addition that will promote Northeastern Wisconsin’s shipbuilders and maritime-related businesses as well as the world’s most extensive navigable waterways system.
“It will serve as a striking visual landmark on the Sturgeon Bay waterfront,” according to the museum’s President of the Board of Directors Bill Harder. “Every step of the way, we ensure that our guests have unparalleled, enriching experiences with local maritime history and lore.”
