The Door County Maritime Museum is nearly halfway towards their goal of $5.5 million to build their Maritime Lighthouse Tower. The museum raised $2.5 million in its first stage of fundraising for the Maritime Lighthouse Tower, which includes ten stories of new exhibit space and an 11th floor outdoor observation deck. Executive Director Amy Paul says she is thankful for the support the community has given.
Some of the tower’s exhibits will focus on the evolution of commercial ships, shipwrecks of the Great Lakes, and other regional highlights. The Door County Maritime Museum hopes to break ground on the project in the near future.
