In the Hackley House, visitors experience an exquisite example of Victorian architecture and late 19th-century interior decorative arts.

Find out how springs are made and watch vintage machinery in operation. Visitors are surprised to see how many familiar products were made in Muskegon.
Go on a maritime and lighthouse tour, where the group will travel by land and lake to see lighthouses and World War II vessels, and enjoy a sunset dinner on the water.
