The Ashtabula Maritime & Surface Transportation Museum is home to the world’s largest piece of beach glass. It was discovered in October 2017 on the shores of Lake Erie between Ashtabula and Conneaut. This 12” high, 17” diameter beauty weighs 275 lbs.

Also, at the Ashtabula Maritime and Surface Transportation Museum, visitors may view a working commercial coal dock and the best view of the lighthouse.  See a Hulett model, photo/harbor history, and artifacts of the Great Lakes.  The museum has the last remaining Ashtabula Hulett unloader “bucket” and a portion of its “Leg”, as well as other artifacts on the grounds. In addition, there is a display dedicated to U.S. Merchant Marines and Support Our Troops! Tours of the actual pilothouse are provided.  Included is a display of pictures of the sunken ship Daniel J. Morrell and the entire crew loss except for the “Lone Survivor” Dennis Hale. (He is pictured in the display).
