Everyone loves the Great Lakes. A great place to celebrate is at the Marquette Maritime Museum, but your help is needed.
The museum’s roof needs to be replaced to preserve history for future generations.
Help by making a donation today.
Message from the Maritime Museum:
The Museum’s north and east-facing roof has sustained damage over the years, resulting in missing and faulty shingles. Unfortunately, the roof is asbestos that needs to be removed with proper asbestos abatement practices. The cost for the roof and the asbestos abatement is $155,000. The project will take 6 weeks and will most likely affect our opening in 2024, which will in turn affect profits from loss of ticket sales. There are no roof leaks as of now, but we feel it is just a matter of time. The Museum building houses all of our archival collections, a museum gallery, a gift shop, and administrative offices. A new roof is our top priority because any leaks will stop us from fulfilling our mission of preserving maritime history. ANY DONATIONS WILL HELP!
