Discovery Center ~ Great Lak...


To create and maintain a collaborative educational facility where children, youth, and adults can learn the value of historic preservation, the importance of environmental stewardship, the joy of discovery, and the pleasure of water-based recreation as well as to provide support to the member water-related charitable organizations for their respective operations and missions.

Discovery Center~Great Lakes is the shared home of four of the region’s dynamic and important nonprofit organizations: the Maritime Heritage Alliance, the Watershed Center Grand Traverse Bay, and the Great Lakes Children’s Museum, and is the future home of a sailing program directed by Traverse Area Community Sailing.

In 2012, the Traverse Tall Ship Company began to operate on the Discovery Center campus as an affiliate business partner, launching its sailing adventures aboard the 114-foot schooner Manitou from the Discovery Center dock.
