Icebreaker Mackinaw Maritime Museum, Inc.
The Icebreaker Mackinaw Maritime Museum will collect, preserve, protect and interpret the rich maritime and marine history of the Straits of Mackinac and the Great Lakes. The Museum will feature the USCGC Mackinaw WAGB-83 and the important historical and present day contributions of the US Coast Guard on the Great Lakes. The Museum will present the unique maritime history, economy and ecology of the Straits of Mackinac, the Great Lakes and the State of Michigan through engaging and entertaining educational programming and interpretive exhibits.
The Icebreaker Mackinaw Maritime Museum has charted a course to a very exciting future and, over the next ten years, plans to purchase and improve the Chief Wawatam dock, create a welcoming greenspace, and build a museum facility capable of presenting a wealth of stories and exhibits about the Straits of Mackinac and the northern Great Lakes.
