  • We had a wonderful time. It's well organized and some wonderful people work there. We will go back there again to learn more about the history of that area. The gift shop has alot of very nice things.
  • On Sunday, September 8th my family drove 40 minutes to Sandusky to attend an antique boat/car show at the Paper District Marina that was sponsored by the Maritime Museum. There was NO BOAT/CAR SHOW.... Professional printed signage was posted by the restroom area at the Dockside Cafe/Marina on a locked board.... I emailed the museum on Sunday, 9-8-19, my disappointment... I realize they are on winter hours and not open until Tuesdays, but here it is Thursday, 9-12-19, afternoon and I have not yet received a reply to why was this posted if there was no show?? If it was cancelled, then why was it not marked, so people do not make the drive?? If it was a previous year, then why was signage not removed??
