Volunteers Spruce Up Maritime Museum
Museum Cleaned Up Ahead of Tourist Season
DULUTH, Minn. – As Duluth slowly emerges from winter, local attractions prepare for tourist season.
A crew of about 15 volunteers spent Wednesday cleaning the Duluth Maritime Museum.
The workers cleaned the museum, made sure the electronic displays were ready, and polished all the brass in the museum’s engine room.
According to park rangers, the museum gets too busy for a thorough cleaning once the tourists hit town.
“During the summer we can get anywhere from 2,000–5,000 people a day, so that doesn’t give us a lot of time to clean the exhibits and displays,” said Ranger Sara Summers-Luedtke. “This down time helps to get everything clean and looking nice for our visitors.”
The Duluth Maritime Museum is open year-round, though only on weekends during the off-season.
