“Fun With Grandkids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2012 via mobile

I took my 7 year old grandson. He had a good time, he asked questions the whole time we was there, there was someone close to answer him. I thought I would get I am bored or I want to go home, instead he has told everyone about the great time he had and how much he liked the people that ran the place.. (lol) they really took the time for him.

“More than Maritime”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2012

Toured this museum with a friend while on a girls' getaway and was very pleased. While I did expect to see alot of fishing, boating and lighthouse memorabilia, I did NOT expect all the other historical artifacts! There was so much history packed into this little building...clothing, furniture, mementos of the past and of the town. We were there on a Friday afternoon and for much of our visit we were the only visitors, so the "curator" (I believe his name was Jim) gave us an extensive tour and was able to share a lot of info with us. He grew up in Michigan City, and was able to share so many stories and tidbits from the past. A very worthwhile visit!
