Public Exhibit Opening – Wisconsin’s Shipwreck Coasts

May 11 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Join us for the opening day of our newest exhibit: Wisconsin’s Shipwreck Coasts!
Wisconsin is a maritime state. Over the past 300 years, people from across Europe and beyond navigated to Wisconsin in search of a better life. Many risked their lives by sailing aboard ships through the Great Lakes during a time when shipwrecks were common.
The Wisconsin’s Shipwreck Coasts exhibit features artifacts, stories, and interactives from several shipwrecks that were lost beneath the vast natural highways along Wisconsin’s coastlines. Hear from pioneer shipwreck explorers who first found these shipwrecks and how underwater archaeologists today are using state-of-the-art technology to document and preserve this submerged history for future generations!
Admission to the exhibit is included with regular Museum admission. WMM Members are always free!

Produced in partnership with Wisconsin Shipwreck Coast National Marine Sanctuary, National Marine Sanctuary Foundation, Wisconsin Underwater Archeological Association, Wisconsin Historical Society, Allstates Rigging, Bayland Construction, Vagabond Creative Studio, Digital Design Services, Superior Lighthouse Restoration, Phil Carlucci, & Gauthier Furnitur
