Great Lakes Maritime Heritage Center
Where Every Meeting and Event is SPECIAL!
Looking for a unique venue with excellent customer service and technical support to host your next business meeting or training? Perhaps you need a fun and interesting place to entertain a group of young children, teenagers, colleagues, or family and friends for a birthday, wedding, graduation, or retirement party? The Great Lakes Maritime Heritage Center may be just the place for your next special event or meeting!
Our meeting rooms are bright and well maintained with convenient access to a comfortable 93-seat movie theater, multiple restrooms, and extra space for setting up food and drink service without disrupting your party. During breaks, your group can explore our impressive shipwreck museum exhibits on two levels, including a full-size, animated ship, the Western Hope, as it navigates through a treacherous storm. Or you can step outside and enjoy the beautiful Thunder Bay River and the Great Lakes Maritime Heritage Trail, all just a short walk to downtown restaurants and shops.
To top off your special event, book a guided cruise on the Lady Michigan glass-bottom boat and experience Lake Huron’s underwater shipwreck museum. With a seating capacity of 80, your guests are sure to have an experience to remember!
