New exhibits push Maritime Tower closer to completion

It is eight floors up and two to go for you to enjoy at the Jim Kress Maritime Tower at the Door County Maritime Museum in Sturgeon Bay.


Opening its two newest floors covering the area’s shipbuilding history and showcasing the people that call the water home was a Christmas gift for patrons last month, with crews working on finishing the final two floors by the end of the winter. Door County Maritime Museum Deputy Director and Development Manager Sam Perlman says it almost feels like a new space throughout its Sturgeon Bay campus. They are hard at work updating some of the galleries before the busy tourism season arrives.

The Sturgeon Bay campus is not the only Door County Maritime Museum property up for a facelift. A revitalization plan for the Death’s Door Maritime Museum in Gills Rock is already underway. The museum staff is also preparing to stage several rooms at the new rehabilitated Keeper’s Quarters on Cana Island before the summer season.
