Geocaching: Maritime History

Geocaching: Maritime History

On your visit to the Wisconsin Maritime Museum, save some extra time to visit the "museum" that exists outside in our community! We have five GPS units that can be borrowed from our front desk. You can explore any of the ten maritime history caches that have been left in Manitowoc and Two Rivers and see special places in local maritime history while you search! A booklet is available showing easy instructions and coordinates to get you started. We will save your credit card number until you return the GPS unit to the front desk. There is no charge for this activity!

Are you already familiar with geocaching and have your own unit? You can go to www.geocaching.com and type in Manitowoc's zipcode, 54220. A list of caches will appear.   Choose any cache by WiscMaritime and you're on your way to enjoying "space-based education." We have also added a NOAA geocoin to each of the ten caches for Manitowoc and Two Rivers. Will you be the first to discover a coin and help it travel on its mission to a new destination? Give it a try!

You're not in Manitowoc but want to find maritime geocaches? You can still use the same WiscMaritime name to locate maritime geocaches in Superior, Door County, and Milwaukee thanks to the Wisconsin Historical Society!
