This museum started as a grassroots effort to display the facinating power and wrath of this great lake. You can feel the strength of what people who work the lake must have to endure. Marvel at this collection that so vividly depicts a very exciting...More

$7 for adults to do either the lighthouse or the museum or $12 to do both. Prices as of June 2017. Children are a lower price but unsure the price. It is definitely worth the cost.
