This Smithsonian Affiliated museum features the nation's most fully restored World War II submarine. This is your opportunity to operate a real steam engine, time-travel back to a 19th-century shipbuilding town and let the kids sail their own boat in the Children's Waterways room-all at the largest maritime museum on the Great Lakes.

Enjoy our Sub Pub, an outdoor roof deck pub with a great view! Enjoy a cold drink and order food from local restaurants.
