– David VI was a childhood fan of the Milwaukee clipper when I would see it leave Muskegon harbor while camping in Muskegon State Park. I followed it with curiosity over the decades since it’s retirement, and recently took a pilgrimage to Muskegon to tour the ship. The guides were informative and friendly. There’s still a lot of work to do in the restoration process, but the preservation group is working diligently on fundraising and developing a volunteer base. Plenty of room for the tour to become more popular, as I was the only person on my tour. I enjoyed it thoroughly and took lots of photos!
-Nancy HStep back in time on the vintage Milwaukee Clipper. Every turn, every room will be a time capsule worthy surprise, from the state rooms, to the dance floor, to the movie theater, the ice cream parlor to the bar. Everything is vintage to the early 40’s. The ship itself predates the Titanic!! This tucked away hidden treasure is definitely worth a visit. Check the website for days and times. Tours leave on the hour and take an hour, but it will be well worth it! Please note the ship is still a restoration in progress. Also, this endeavor is run by volunteers so please be flexible.
