Marquette Maritime Museum:

Self-guided tour. Maritime Museum is ADA accessible. A few wheelchairs are available for guest use.

Marquette Harbor Lighthouse Tour:

Guided Tour. Not ADA accessible. Moderate walking with 50 steps just to get up to the Lighthouse entrance. Lighthouse is now part of a new yet unnamed City park. Lighthouse Tour times of 11:30, 1:00 and 2:30. Weather permitting. Tours last 45-50 minutes. Admission for the Lighthouse Tour is paid at the Museum and leaves from the Museum entrance. Times are subject to change and tours do not run in inclement weather. Please call ahead to verify tour times.


There are a few different options for parking at the Maritime Museum. There is a paved lot right off of Lakeshore Blvd, located between the Water Treatment Building and the U.S. Coast Guard Station. From this lot, the Museum entrance is on the lake side.

To get to our dirt lot on the lake side, you must turn at the parking lot entrance to McCarty’s Cove (there is a sign with that says “Maritime Museum” with an arrow), go through the parking lot all the way down (there is another sign stating where to turn) and turn right onto Coast Guard Road. Please go slow on this road as it is a one lane road and is also a shared bike path. This road will take you to the Museum’s dirt parking lot on your right.

For larger vehicles, we recommend parking on Arch Street. This is a side street next to the Museum. The other option is to park at Mattson Lower Harbor Park and take the short walk to your right along the bike path. The path brings you right to the Maritime Museum.

Ship’s Store

The Maritime Museum has a gift shop supplied with various nautical gifts. We have lighthouse models, books, calendars, mugs, videos, magnets, key chains and much more! You do not need to buy admission to the Museum to come and browse the gift shop.
