Great place to take a family in Port Huron for an afternoon of learning and fun. Port Huron Museum has a maritime display that has intrigued me since I was a child. You and your family won't be disappointed with a visit to this attraction.

I have visited the museum with my grand children and they were very appreciative of the great items displayed and the interaction they could do with the displays. Our town is better off because of this venue and the people operating it. Thanks Museum.
