Great Lakes Naval Memorial And Museum

Great Lakes Naval Memorial and Museum invites visitors to step back into time aboard two historic vessels as well as the new state-of-the-art museum facility. Berthed near the picturesque Pere Marquette Park on Lake Michigan, GLNMM offers tours of USS Silversides, America's most famous surviving submarine from WWII, and USCGC McLane, a prohibition-era Buck-and-a-Quarter (125ft) boat that earned honor for sinking an enemy vessel during WWII.
