    Relive the days of steamboats, motor launches and wooden cruisers with a visit to the Iowa Great Lakes Maritime Museum. The museum has amassed a vast collection of local photographs, articles and artifacts from the Iowa Great Lakes early ‘golden days’ of boating. Special features of the museum include a fully restored boathouse, 25 classic wooden runabouts, an exhibit of period swimsuits and recreational fishing and hunting articles. You’ll recognize several familiar hallmarks from the old amusement park. Come visit the Maritime Museum in the Okoboji Spirit Center. Open year-round with extended hours Memorial Day through Labor Day.
