At the Wisconsin Maritime Museum, there is so much to see and do. You'll want to come and learn about the maritime history of Wisconsin and the Great Lakes. The kids will want to play in the Children's Waterways Room. You'll marvel at the exhibits, be in awe of the detail, and wander in and amongst rich maritime history like you've never seen before. You can even walk through a real US Navy World War II submarine!
Special exhibit-- "Bells and Whistles, Flags and Flashes: Lost Language of the Lakes" featuring over 30 museum artifacts and many hands-on stations to learn about maritime communication.
