Have you ever visited the Door County Historical Museum? I have passed it many times but never before visited. The building looked… small. The word “historical” always seemed to be very related to… history!
Free Admission can eventually be a great motivator. Last week, we decided to take a trip and see what the Historical Museum had to offer.
It was absolutely phenomenal! Everybody had a great time. In fact, we spent at least three hours searching through the treasures that had been stored up of Door County’s History. The inside was huge! We saw everything from old time gizmos and gadgets to fish boils to cherries. You can settle in and watch a few movies about the history of Door County. Lock someone into the old time jail or ring the fire truck bell – one time only, please.
The Door County Historical Museum is located at 18 North 4th Avenue, Sturgeon Bay, WI 54235. They are Open Daily May 1st through October 31st from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Bridgeport Resort is within walking distance to two great shopping areas.
The West Side District is an old fashioned downtown with many wood structures and tin facades. There are coffee, wine and gourmet beer shops, taverns, as well as diverse dining possibilities. There are many boutique shops, a jewelry store, great places for home décor, and many outdoor activities.
Third Avenue is like a picturesque “main street” with stone buildings and plenty of windows to window shop. It is known as an integral part of the historical district. Visitors will enjoy all flavors of restaurants and taverns. There are a wide variety of stores and boutiques. You can discover treasures from antique and retro shops, to finding great works of art or that old favorite book, series, or rare find at the local bookstores.
