The Door County Maritime Museum in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, invites the public to attend the National Maritime Day Celebration on Monday, May 22. The National Maritime Day is celebrated in our country to recognize the national economic and environmental benefits of the maritime industries-those who have invested their careers in supporting our maritime nation and the merchant mariners who have given their full measure of devotion.
The celebration will include a formal Honor Guard, singing of the national anthem, leading dignitaries’ perspectives for importance of the maritime industries, an overview of museum’s Maritime Tower visionary contribution to the public’s maritime enlightenment and free tours of the Door County Maritime Museum.
The official ceremony at the Door County Maritime Museum in Sturgeon Bay will begin at 10 a.m., Monday, May 22. The public is invited to attend this free celebration and will enjoy guided tours of the museum after the presentation.
