Activity Overview

Come between early May and late October to enjoy this unique museum housed on an old Great Lakes bulk freighter. At one time this enormous ship transported massive loads of steel, ore, coal, stone and grain in and out of Cleveland. This vintage 1925 vessel which served the Cleveland Cliffs Iron Company and many others like it played a huge role in Cleveland's prosperity for decades.
