Very nice collection of shipwreck stories, remnants, pics and theater.
A schooner has been recreated indoors and a simulated storm reoccurs I think every hour.
Walking through the ship in the storm really gives the creepy feel the sailor's must have experienced through the years. They also have a nice little gift ship.
The museum has a science lab, access to the river, a walking trail and a ship that will take you out onto the Thunder Bay to view the underwater shipwrecks. The museum is free but the boat ride cost extra. Really a nice experience and a great addition to Alpena,
