Museum Main Entrance Under Construction

Museum’s Front Street Entrance Under Construction As Glass City Metropark Continues to Take Shape.

The Front St. entrance to the National Museum of the Great Lakes is under construction as Glass City Metropark works to improve the vehicle entrance and accessibility to both the museum and new park grounds. Work began Tuesday, March 8 and will conclude in April in preparation for May’s increased seasonal visitation as the museum’s vessels re-open. The main signage on Front Street will be down for the duration of the construction, however the museum’s 11,000 square foot inside exhibit space will remain open. Visitors should expect to be directed to the museum’s parking lot with the use of orange barrels, temporary signage, and occasional entrance detours.
