The Door County Maritime Museum in Sturgeon Bay will be offering free admission to children 12 and under with an accompanying paid adult beginning Sunday, January 24, and continuing on Sundays through the end of March.

Among the highlights is the new 40th anniversary commemorative exhibit related to the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald. Highlights include a deck light and life jacket given to the museum when the Fitzgerald was in Sturgeon Bay for off-season work. A video featuring radio conversations recorded on Nov. 10, 1975 discussing the possible sinking and rescue attempts is another intriguing aspect of the presentation.
