The Door County Maritime Museum in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin was established in 1969 and now includes four amazing galleries that feature lighthouses, model ships and boats, shipwrecks, the area’s numerous shipbuilding companies and more. The museum includes an in-water exhibit of a completely restored 1960s era tug boat, Tug John Purves, that was built in 1919 and served until early 2000. The Museum is located along Sturgeon Bay next to the historic steel bridge. Across the bay is Door County’s largest shipbuilder, Bay Shipbuilding, which can be seen through a submarine periscope inside the museum.
