Marquette Maritime Museum:

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

Marquette Harbor Lighthouse Tour:

This is a Guided Tour and is not ADA accessible because of moderate walking along with 45 steps to access historic Lighthouse building. Lighthouse Tour times are 11:30 am, 1:00 pm and 2:30 pm, Tuesday through Sunday, weather permitting. Tours last about an hour. Admission for the Lighthouse Tour is paid at the Museum and leaves from the Museum. Times are subject to change and tours do not run in inclement weather. Each tour is limited to 16 guests and they often sell out so please call ahead to verify tour times, pay by phone, and reserve your tickets.


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.

Another option is to turn east on Arch Street (closest street to the north of the Museum), cross over the multi-use bike/walking path, and park in the lot between the lake and the 1891 US Life-Saving Service building. The third option is to also turn east on Arch Street and then turn right and park in front of the Museum building.

The last option is to park at Mattson Lower Harbor Park and take the short walk to your right along the multi-use path. The path brings you right to the Maritime Museum.
