Fodor's Review

A must-stop for nautical enthusiasts, this museum is at the foot of the Highway 42/57 bridge in Sturgeon Bay, the gateway to Door County. Displays on local shipbuilding and commercial fishing over the past century show the region's significant contributions to maritime history. Allow time for the 40-minute guided tour of the John Purves, a restored tugboat that traveled around the Great Lakes, the Caribbean, and even the Bering Sea during the 1960s.
