AmericaJR’s Gloria Rzucidlo recently visited the Dossin Great Lakes Museum to check out their special exhibit “Maritime Miniatures: The Art of the Ship Model.” From intricately detailed steamers and schooners to models designed for play, the art of bringing massive ships down in scale so that they can be appreciated up close is something that ship model markers spend many hours perfecting. Whether created by master builders or hobbyists, each model is a piece of history and art. See over 150 of our models on display together for the first time in more than 20 years!
The Dossin Great Lakes Museum is located at 100 Strand Drive on Belle Isle in Detroit. For more info, go to https://detroithistorical.org/dossin-great-lakes-museum/plan-your-visit/general-information
