The Door County Maritime Museum is hopeful the May opening of its new Shipwrecks of Door County exhibit provides a boost to not just its mission but to the Sturgeon Bay area. The museum received a $39,550 Joint Effort Marketing (JEM) grant from the Department of Tourism for a statewide rollout promoting the exhibit, which will feature water physics experiments, a reimagining of the shipwreck Louisiana, and other interactive exhibits. Executive Director Amy Paul says the new exhibit should bring extra excitement to the museum.
Paul hopes the exhibit gives the community a preview of the types of displays it hopes to host inside its planned Maritime Tower, which is still in its fundraising stage.
