Exploring History through Technology

How do you help put a small town museum on the map? Outfit it with the latest audio and visual technologies to immerse patrons into the moment, and create an unforgettable interactive experience! The Port of Ludington Maritime Museum is a truly unique destination. The former Coast Guard Station has been transformed into a state-of-the-art museum brimming with exhibits that offer rare glimpses into the past with authentic artifacts, historic photographs, and the voices of people who played key roles in maritime industries that shaped the region. From the interactive “Piloting the Car Ferries” exhibit to the holographic “Ghost of Captain Van Dyke” ,  The Port of Ludington Maritime Museum truly bring history to life through the use of technology.

The interactive “Piloting the Car Ferries” exhibit is truly the star of the show. Visitors can take control of the helm and telegraphs to pilot the carferry, all under the guidance of veteran Captain Wallace Van Dyke. The exhibit uses digital screens to create a virtual reality experience, giving visitors a true view of what it would look like to pilot the Pere Marquette out of the harbor and across Lake Michigan in a deep fog. This exhibit is a truly unforgettable experience.

We are proud of the work our team did to create an unforgettable interactive experience at The Port of Ludington Maritime Museum. By using the latest audio and visual technologies, we were able to bring history to life and provide an experience that visitors will remember for years to come.
