World's only recreation of a three-masted Great Lakes schooner arrives to downtown Milwaukee by Ryan

Denis Sullivan + Discovery World

I lived in Milwaukee a couple summers ago and absolutely loved the city's waterfront. They also had an amazing schooner fully restored that toured from Milwaukee down to the Florida Keys on a nearly annual basis. It is returning this summer and is open for tours!

MILWAUKEE — The world's only recreation of a three-masted Great Lakes schooner arrives to downtown Milwaukee this weekend.

The Denis Sullivan returns on Saturday from its winter dock and will be open for public tours at the Discovery World harbor in Lake Michigan.

Professional shipwrights and nearly 1,000 volunteers finished building the 137-foot re-creation of a 19th century Great Lakes schooner in 2000. It is used for education, training and research.

Museum spokesman Richard Cieslak (SEE'-slak) says the ship will visit Manitowoc on the last weekend in June, Sturgeon Bay over the July 4th weekend and then Racine later this summer.
