Mackinac Bridgemen Museum
It’s not slick or fancy, but the small Mackinac Bridgemen Museum (231 E. Central, 231/436-8751, www.mackinacbridgemenmuseum.com, 8 a.m.–midnight daily May–Oct., free) above Mama Mia’s Pizza is loaded with tidbits and artifacts on the construction of the $100 million Mackinac Bridge. A very well-done video documents the bridge’s design and construction. For more information about the bridge itself, consult the Mackinac Bridge Authority (www.mackinacbridge.org).
