Maritime Museum Temporarily Reduces Prices

The Door County Maritime Museum has begun removal of the “Ghosts! Haunted Lighthouses of Great Lakes” exhibit to be followed by the installation of the new “Pirates: Ship to Shore” exhibition which is scheduled to open on May 19.

With the Horton Gallery closed in the meantime, the museum has reduced admission prices for the museum to $5 for adults and $2 for youth (ages 5 to 17). The new price presents a spring break bargain for anyone who has not seen the remaining three galleries, including the Peterson Gallery, which is dedicated to the area’s rich shipbuilding history and houses a nuclear submarine periscope; the Roen Asher Gallery, which features vessels and engines; and the Baumgartner Gallery, which includes a impressive model collection.

Beginning March 25, the museum will host a mini-exhibit on “Titanic’s Wake,” which will explore the impact on maritime safety, even on the Great Lakes. This 100-year remembrance will feature a 9-foot model of the RMS Titanic.

The tug John Purves will open for weekends in April when the combination price will be $10 for both the museum and tug ($7 for youth). Admission to the tug only remains at $6.
