Whether created by master builders or hobbyists, each Great Lakes ship model on display at the Dossin Great Lakes Museum is a piece of history and art.
The Detroit Historical Society has a world-class collection of Great Lakes ship models, representing over 300 years of North American freshwater maritime history.
Come check out over 150 ship models (including the Boblo Boats!) on display together for the first time in more than 20 years!
This is a curator talk called Maritime Miniatures: The Art of the Ship Model hosted by historian Bill Pringle, who helped research and design the special exhibition.
Tickets include admission to special exhibition and Museum.
