Our popular Historical Bus Tours are back! Take an entertaining, narrated journey through Marquette. For the summer of 2017 we are commemorating World War I during the centennial of the Great War. Our route takes you through the Historic District, down to the waterfront, and through the streets of Marquette. You will learn interesting historical facts about the Queen City of the North as you hear a general history narration throughout the journey from your tour guide. Through colorful characters that hop on the bus to share their stories, you will learn how the people of Marquette were affected by the Great War, and what everyday life was like here one hundred years ago.
Eight tours are available and advance purchase of tickets is strongly recommended. Tickets are now on sale and are available by calling 906-226-3571, visiting marquettehistory.org, or stopping by the Marquette Regional History Center during regular operating hours.

Travel in an air conditioned Checker Bus for the duration of the tour: 90 minutes. Our 2017 tours are being sponsored by Checker Transport, Travel Marquette, and Sanders & Czapski Associates.
