High School and College

Depending on your reason for visiting, we can feature a certain element of Great Lakes history or science to meet the needs of your students.  Possible focus areas can include shipbuilding techniques, World War II history, Great Lakes invasive species, commercial shipping, maritime careers, and more!  Call and speak with our educator to help create a museum experience tailored for your group.


Currently, the following program is also available:


Immersed in History:  USS Lagarto

Students become immersed in history as they view historic photos and artifacts while learning about Manitowoc’s lost and found World War II submarine, USS Lagarto.  Discussion and interaction with museum educators will aid students in understanding how fascinating, inspiring, and challenging history can be.


Other programs currently in development include

Society and World War II

Life style changes in America as a result of World War II will be explored and analyzed through digital resources, artifacts, and props.


Maritime STEM

The USS Cobia submarine and the Chief Wawatam car ferry steam engine are amazing technical artifacts  with connections to physics, math, and engineering. This is an opportunity to apply STEM concepts from your classroom in a unique setting.
