I stopped into the museum on my way through town and found it to be upstairs above a mom and pop pizza place. The short tour had a ton of artifacts and ironwork paraphernalia. It was interesting.

A great collection of artifacts and memorabilia from the building of the Mackinac Bridge. Great movie on it's construction and video of comments by some of the men that were on the job. Best of all it's FREE.

Though I felt obligated to purchase a lousy pizza. I like these old school museums that are collections of stuff without too much curation. An interesting story.

Loved the variety of displays! I came out of there with an appreciation of the work required to build the Mackinac Bridge. Ended the visit with a delicious pizza.

History of the building of the bridge.Including memoriablia from Ironworkers from US and Canada. There is a small theater to view what went into the construction and during the construction as well. A learning experience that will make you think.

Hard to find, upstairs from a bar. Interesting bridge construction history. Iron workers have created this and it pays tribute to those who died while building the bridge.
