Grand Traverse Lighthouse Museum

Grand Traverse Lighthouse Museum

This lighthouse marks the end of the Leelanau Peninsula and has guided ships in the Manitou Passage of Lake Michigan for nearly 150 years making it one of the oldest on the Great Lakes. This lighthouse is sponsored by the Grand Traverse Lighthouse Foundation and features a historic and educational museum resembling a lighthouse keeper's home of the 1920s and 30s with a variety of exhibits depicting a broad spectrum of maritime and local history. You can also now become a Guide and a working hand at the light house, so contact the volunteer keeper program for more details.
