Explore the Haunted Lighthouses of the Great Lakes

The Door County Maritime Museum in Sturgeon Bay delves into the world of the paranormal with the opening of its exhibit “Ghosts! Haunted Lighthouses of the Great Lakes.”

Visitors will pass through a lighthouse filled with purported paranormal experiences. History will blend with legend as it relates to nine of the most significant lighthouse hauntings on the Great Lakes; three are right here in Door County: Chambers Island, Sherwood Point, and Pottawatomie on Rock Island.

Museum Curator John Moga stresses the exhibition bares no resemblance to the haunted houses one might experience during Halloween. But that doesn’t mean he and Assistant Curator June Larson haven’t incorporated some entertaining elements throughout the exhibit as they take historical accounts of hauntings and replicate them for visitors.

Museum hours are 9 am – 6 pm. The cost of admission is $7.50 for adults, $4 for students, and free for children. For more information call 920.743.5958 or visit
