The Door County Maritime Museum’s Gills Rock location officially reopened to the public for the season this weekend. In contrast to the Sturgeon Bay campus’ focus on shipbuilding, the Gills Rock Museum turns its attention to the commercial fishing industry tied to the far tip of the peninsula. Door County Maritime Museum Executive Director Amy Paul says the location helps the fishing tradition of Door County come alive.
After this weekend, the seasonal museum will be open seven days a week beginning June 3 and will be under the care of new site manager Kirsten Linder.
