Original Mackinaw Bridge Museum

Located above MaMa Mia’s Restaurant, the Mackinaw Bridge Museum was created by the restaurant’s owner, J. C. Stilwell, who was one of the Ironworkers who built the Mighty Mac – The Mackinac Bridge. The museum began when JC purchased a spinning wheel (used to build the massive Mackinac Bridge cables on the spot) and a copy of a movie about the building of the bridge. Ironworkers from around the country began donating items to the museum, including a diving suit, documents, photographs, and many tools and parts used during the construction of the Mackinac Bridge.
