We enjoyed driving across and looking for boats/ships. It gave great views of the lakes. Our sons enjoyed the trip across.

This free museum is above the Mama Mia's Pizza shop. The video is very dated but tells all about how the bridge was built back in the 50s. Pretty amazing! Plus there are lots of artifacts from the people who worked on the bridge.

Nice and interesting information. Could use an update. The area was kind of small. However, they did have some very interesting photos and facts.

You go through a restaurant and then up the stairs to visit the museum. There is a lot of memorabilia throughout the entire museum. You can browse through the rooms and find all kinds of interesting artifacts!

There is a movie which has actual footage of the bridge being built. There are artifacts galore from the employees which were really there at the time. Best of all, it's free!

We walked to the Shepler's Ferry Service from Deer Head Inn. The ferry to us out to the Mackinac Bridge so when could view the bridge up close. The ferry took us to Mackinac Island. The ride only took about 15 minutes

It's good, it's free, I just wish it had a little more organization. But again, it is good and it is free!
