Full description
Travel back in time through thousands of years of history at the National Museum of the Great Lakes in Toledo, Ohio. Learn about how they are not one of the most important natural resources in the world. Come to know how they have dramatically impacted the social, economic, and political history of the North American continent.

The National Museum of the Great Lakes tells the awe-inspiring stories of the Great Lakes through breathtaking photography, over 300 incredible artifacts, a number of powerful audiovisual displays, and 40 hands-on interactive exhibits.

If you choose, you can book the option to visit the 617-foot iron ore freighter, the Col. James M. Schoonmaker Museum Ship, as well as the historic Museum Tug Ohio.

Hear tales that span hundreds of years, from the fur traders in the 1600s to the Underground Railroad operators in the 1800s, the rum runners in the 1900s, to the sailors on the thousand-footers sailing today. The theme of the Great Lakes as a Powerful Force runs through all of these stories and will create a lifelong interest in all who visit.
