Door County Maritime Museum Honors Veterans with Veterans Day Exhibit

The Door County Maritime Museum will host a special Veterans Day Exhibit November 4, 2017 – November 18, 2017.  Learn the history of Veterans Day itself as well as more information about the many veterans of Door County who served faithfully through our countries past conflicts.  Included in this exhibit will be the unveiling of our newest 6ft long model WW2 era Subchaser, complete with full crew.  To honor our veterans, the Door County Maritime Museum will be offering free admission to any veteran in addition to active duty members, on November 11, 2017.

The model is that of the SC1034, an anti-Submarine craft built by Peterson Boat Works in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin in 1943.  Its operational life was spent primarily protecting the harbors of the Pacific coast during the war years.  Built over several decades by John W. Luehrsen and featuring life-like 3D printed models of its crew, this model will help illustrate in fine detail life at sea during war.

The Door County Maritime Museum, located at 120 N Madison Ave, Sturgeon Bay, WI, will be open daily from 10 am-5 pm. For more information visit www.DCMM.org or call 920-743-5958.
