Visit this great maritime museum on the Bayfront of Erie and tour the historic brig Niagara--Oliver Hazzard Perry's flagship which won the Battle of Lake Erie.

First to Review

The Erie Maritime Museum is located inside the Pennsylvania Electric Company's former (1917-1991) Front Street Generating Station. You can still see a large GE Electric Steam Generator on the museum's first floor. Maritime exhibits include a replica of the mid-ship section of the U.S.S. Lawrence, Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry's first flagship in the Battle of Lake Erie. The sails on the Lawrence are functional and used for training and demonstrations. A replica of Perry's second flagship, the U.S. Brig Niagara docks outside. Historic artifacts from Erie’s days as the freshwater fishing capital of the world are also on display.
