Individual & Family Memberships

Individual & Family Membership Options

Since 1969, support from members is the foundation of our success as one of the largest maritime museums on the Great Lakes.

Members directly empower us to offer exhibits and programming related to Great Lakes history, environmental education, and USS Cobia, the most historically accurate World War II submarine in the nation.
