Dexter and I love finding unique dog-friendly attractions and activities. When we stayed in Duluth, Minnesota, we knew we had to cross over to Wisconsin and look for some fun dog adventures, and boy did we find one at the SS Meteor Whaleback Ship Museum.

I contacted the museum prior to our arrival to ask if Dexter would be able to join us, and we were given the green light. First, a little history of the museum. The SS Meteor is the last remaining whaleback freighter designed by Captain Alexander McDougall. The SS Meteor was built right in Superior, Wisconsin.

The earned their name “whaleback” because of their innovative cigar-shaped steel hulls that rode low in the water when fully loaded with their cargo, giving the impression of a whale’s back.

In 1972, the Meteor officially landed in Superior and is now permanently land-berthed on Barker’s Island. She ended her shipping career as the SS Meteor, after carrying a variety of cargoes over the years, including iron ore, grain, sand and gravel, cars, and oil. Guests are able to tour the ship from the pilot house to cargo holds. The SS Meteor Museum also features exhibits on Great Lakes shipwrecks and the history of shipbuilding in the Twin Ports.

Dexter and I enjoyed the bottom half of the ship’s museum and did not take the guided tour. However, my step-dad did, and loved every minute of the tour. I was a bit worried that the steps would be too steep for Dexter and the top of the ship too hot. But Dexter and I had a great time looking at all the amazing pieces in the museum.

  1. Dexter is too cute!! he looks like he is always smiling!! I love the idea of traveling with my pup. Always on the lookout for dog friendly places

  2. I absolutely love Duluth! There is so much to see and do! I have never been to the Whaleback and I know my son would love it, so we have a new item on our list next time we go!

  3. What a neat ship to explore. It’s fun to be able to travel with your dogs, and they look so well-behaved! It must be so much more convenient to take the dogs with you instead of having to board them.
