This museum looks small from the outside but the inside is extensive. The Door County Historical Museum tracks the extensive and colorful history of the peninsula, complete with an original jail cell, a fire truck you (and the kids) can sit in, and even a nature section illustrating the variety of plants and animals you’ll find throughout the area. The Chicago Tribune even named it the “Best Small Museum in the Midwest.”
The museum is free, although a $2 donation is suggested.
You’ll find it on 4th Street in downtown Sturgeon Bay, one block east of where Business Highway 42/57 veers onto 3rd Street.
