Admission to the museum exhibits at the National Museum of the Great Lakes, NOT INCLUDING the Col. James M. Schoonmaker Museum Ship and Museum Tug Ohio.*
The hour on your ticket is your check-in time. You can arrive at any time during that hour, but we do ask that you arrive during your allotted time. Many people spend at least 1 hour in the museum exhibits.
The member ticket is for members of the National Museum of the Great Lakes. You can become a member by clicking here. Membership is a great way to support the museum, and especially for families can be a great way to save money on admission.
If you would like to include a tour of our museum ships, we offer admission that includes them here.
*Due to their historical accuracy, the Col. James M. Schoonmaker Museum Ship and the Museum Tug Ohio are not ADA accessible. Narrow, steep staircases are common throughout the vessels and may provide difficulties in accessibility for some. The museum exhibits are fully ADA accessible and we offer reduced admission to the museum only.
