Death's Door Maritime Museum featuring new exhibits

Following last year’s name change, you will be able to find some new exhibits at the Death’s Door Maritime Museum in Gills Rock. Door County Maritime Museum officials are committing themselves to rotating exhibits in and out on an annual basis to keep visitors coming back to its northern campus where the area's commercial fishing industry is a major theme.  Executive Director Kevin Osgood says without ten residents going to the bank to get the first $10,000 in operating costs for the Gills Rock building 50 years ago, the Door County Maritime Museum as we know it today may have never existed.

More interactive exhibits are expected to be added to the Death’s Door Maritime Museum by the July 4th holiday. You can learn more about the Death’s Door Maritime Museum by watching our video online with this story.
