Michigan Maritime Museum

260 Dyckman Ave., South Haven, MI

Steeped in maritime history, South Haven is the home of the impressive Michigan Maritime Museum where you and your kids can learn about boat making and get out onto the water in a variety of vessels during a few different sailings, including the Friends Good Will, a replica of a tall ship that fought in the War of 1812.

During the sailings (mid-May to mid-September), the entire crew is dressed in period costume. In the summer, there’s a Pirate cruise that’s sure to make your little ones happy. All sailing and cruise tickets include museum admission.
