A point in the storm and a guiding beacon since 1889, Old Mackinac Point LIghthouse helped passing ships navigate through the treacherous waters of the Straits of Mackinac. There's just as much to see from the top of the tower as inside the original buildings. Authentically restored quarters and exhibits, including the original lens and an audiovisual program, Shipwrecks of the Straits, make this "Castle of the Straits" a true gem of the Great Lakes. 

Located in the reconstructed warehouse, the new Straits of Mackinac Shipwreck Museum features audiovisual displays and a variety of original artifacts to tell the story of the numerous shipwrecks that dot the Straits of Mackinac.

Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse opens for the 2017 season on May 1.
