The 360-foot long steamship City of Milwaukee is the last traditional Great Lakes railroad car ferry and was built in 1931. It is now a National Historic Landmark museum permanently moored on Manistee Lake and open to the public. The ship offers guided tours, museum exhibits, gift shop, special events, facility rentals, volunteer opportunities and the acclaimed "Ghost Ship" haunted house in October. USCGC Acacia is a 1944 buoy tender/icebreaker. Retired in 2006, Acacia is now moored next to the SS City of Milwaukee in Manistee. Open to the public for tours, overnight educational programs and rentals. Please call for tour prices, dates and times. Alongside the ship there is marina slips. Educational programming for groups and schools is available on and off site.
