DescriptionDeceivingly beautiful Lake Superior's unrelenting fury has earned the reputation of being the most treacherous of the Great Lakes. Throughout the museum comples, visitors will see maritime legends come to life. Artifacts and exhibits tell stories of sailors and ships who braved the waters of Superior and those who were lost to its menacing waves. Whitefish Point is the oldest active light on Lake Superior. The Keepers Quarters Dwelling attached to the light has been fully restored and is open for tours. Constructed in 1861 at the order of President Lincoln, exhibits reflect the life of the lightkeeper and his family at the turn of the century. Be sure to visit the Shipwreck Coast Museum Store, the finest maritime gift store in Michigan.
