The Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum was voted as the “Best Art Gallery/Museum” in 2014 by Lake Superior Magazine readers, and is definitely a highlight of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. While the Edmund Fitzgerald is the centerpiece of the museum, its many artifacts and exhibits tell stories of several other ships and sailors who braved the waters of Superior, and the ongoing underwater exploration of these and many more shipwrecks.
