The actual tower portion of the museum is dedicated to the history of the maritime aspects of Mackinac Island and the Great Lakes. Exhibits including shipping over the Great Lakes, Great Lakes shipwrecks, construction of the Mackinac Bridge, and the lighthouses of the Great Lakes.

As you climb the tower, you are also in for the very best view of the island, bridge and surrounding lighthouses that Mackinac Island has to offer.
