Hello From The Lore!
 
 


Dave Erickson, Director

Hello from the Lore 

    We, at the Lore, would love to see you visit this year. With the vicious winter we just went through, you deserve to have a nice getaway. Rogers City is a great way to start the year. We are open and ready for visitors. We saw people, last year, from all over the United States and around the world.

This is the only Maritime Museum that's mission is to honor those who made their livings on the Great Lakes. We have marine artifacts of every kind but our main feature is the collages that cover our walls showing the individual and a biography of their Great Lakes career. We are extremely proud to have that singular distinction! 

 
 

We have many events during the year. A partial listing of events can be found on this Web Site under the Events tab.
