Visit the Maritime Museum and tour Perry's flagship to learn about life aboard a sloop at the time of the War of 1812. The vessel is one of the oldest ship's of sail still in use!

First to Review

This two-masted, square-rigged brig is a replica of Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry's relief flagship in the Battle of Lake Erie. She was launched in 1988 and flies Perry's famous blue battle flag with white lettering that reads "Don't Give Up the Ship." The Niagara is used as a sail training vessel and visits ports across the Great Lakes for Tall Ship Festivals and educational tours. When in Erie, she docks at the Erie Maritime Museum on Presque Isle Bay, not far from where the original Niagara was built. You can regularly see her doing exercises in the bay, sometimes firing her carronades.
