Museum Visit Carries Special Treat

The Door County Maritime Museum (DCMM) is a great place to spend a winter day and now there’s added incentive to get out of the house and visit the Sturgeon Bay facility.

With each admission to the museum now through the opening of the new exhibit “Ghosts! Haunted Lighthouse of the Great Lakes” on May 22, the museum will offer a coupon for a half-price admission to come back and see the new exhibition.

“Even though the Horton Gallery which held the former ‘Freshwater Fury’ exhibit is closed to allow for construction of ‘Ghosts!’ there’s still plenty to see in the museum,” said Executive Director Bob Desh. “Winter is a great time to visit when attendance offers a quieter, more relaxed atmosphere. Then you can come back later this spring or summer to see what will be a spectacular new exhibit at a great price.”

The museum is located at 120 N. Madison Ave. on the Westside waterfront between the downtown bridges. Hours are 9 am – 5 pm daily. Call 920.743.5958 or visit for more information.
