Mackinac Island Observation Tower and Exhibits

Five floors of historical exhibits and the best view on the island. The exhibits cover the diverse history of Mission Point Resort and Mackinac Island.

There is also an exhibit on the film Somewhere in Time, which was primarily filmed on Mission Point property.  (Insider info: Be sure to check out 1) the theater where you can see where Christopher Reeve sat in the theater scene, and 2) the real Hollywood Sound Stage on property that was used during filming)

The actual tower portion of the museum is dedicated to the history of the maritime aspects of Mackinac Island and the Great Lakes.  Exhibits including shipping over the Great Lakes, Great Lakes shipwrecks, construction of the Mackinac Bridge, and the lighthouses of the Great Lakes.

As you climb the tower, you are also in for the very best view of the island, bridge and surrounding lighthouses that Mackinac Island has to offer.

Complimentary to Mission Point guests.
