Travel to the tip of the peninsula to walk the decks of the wooden commercial fishing tug Hope and share the life of a rugged Great Lakes fisherman. Located in the historic fishing village of Gills Rock near the shores of the infamous Port des Morts (Death’s Door) passage, enjoy a new Death’s Door exhibit rich in history and legend, original Kahlenberg engines and artifacts, a new interactive technology that brings the museum to life and an 1897 fourth-order Fresnel lens recently removed from Plum Island lighthouse. This fascinating little maritime museum is one of Door County’s hidden gems. Come see us!
