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. 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.”
Want to find more 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!
