Michigan Maritime Museum rendering

The rendering shows what the Michigan Maritime Museum will look like following an $8 million expansion program. The museum hopes to break ground on the new two-story museum this fall, which is the red-roofed building on the right-hand side of the architectural rendering.

SOUTH HAVEN — When Michigan Maritime Museum launched a campaign this past spring to raise $500,000 this summer toward the construction of a new two-story museum, its staff and board hoped to attract support from the community.

Some of that financial support will now be coming from the South Haven Area Community Foundation.
