How to get here…

Situated in Michigan’s beautiful eastern Upper Peninsula, the Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society and the Museum complex has been termed “world class.” Winner of the Michigan Governor’s Award for the top cultural organization in Michigan, two Michigan Emmy Awards for program productions, the first-ever Upper Peninsula Cultural Anchor Organization awarded by the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs are a few examples of our professional accomplishments.
