Michigan Maritime Museum Opens New Heritage Center in South Haven

Museum in South Haven, Michigan, is open to the public following the completion of its brand-new $3.6 million 17,000-square-foot Maritime Heritage Center.

Visitors to the new center can tour the “Full Steam Ahead: The Golden Age of Great Lakes Passenger Steamships” exhibit, which offers an immersive experience of the early 1900s “when tourists sought escape from the congested urban metropolises to the cool breezes and natural wonders along the northern shores,” according to the museum’s website.

In addition to the large exhibition hall, the new Heritage Center contains a two-story atrium, a spacious room for education classes and workshops, along with a reception area for visitors.

The Heritage Center is part of the first phase of the museum’s $8 million “Launching a Legacy” campaign. The second phase of the project will improve the museum’s waterfront and dock space, restore the historic Jensen property and construct a new lookout tower.
