From Working Tug to Museum Ship - Come Along for the Journey

The National Museum of the Great Lakes welcomes its newest addition, the Tug Ohio, generously donated by Great Lakes Towing Company. The transformation of the Tug Ohio from a working tug to a museum ship will take a lot of work and a lot of money.

We are inviting our members and friends to see the tug prior to restoration. They will learn about its history and get a “hard hat tour” of the vessel. Anyone who participates in the Tug Ohio: Before and After Experience will be invited back next spring to see the restored vessel and attend the re-christening.

Tours will take place every 45 minutes. You must register for a specific time slot. If you need to renew your membership or would like to become a member, visit:

Children under 12 years of age will not be permitted. For your safety, please wear sensible shoes and clothing. You may get dirty. There are sloping decks, steep stairs and tight quarters.

By registering for the Tug Ohio: Before and After Experience you are acknowledging that this is a "hard hat tour" and are releasing the Great Lakes Historical Society and the National Museum of the Great Lakes from any liability.
