About us Located inside the Leelanau State Park in Northern Michigan, The Grand Traverse Lighthouse has been guiding ships and sailors since it was built in 1858. The Museum was opened on Memorial Day in 1986 and since then thousands of people have visited and climbed the tower for a spectacular view of Lake Michigan. Today, the lighthouse keeper’s dwelling is restored and filled with artifacts and tales of those adventurous “days gone by”.
