Mercury Marine opens museum

Mercury Marine opens museum

As part of Mercury Marine’s year-long 75th-anniversary celebration, the company opened the doors today to the Mercury Marine Museum in Fond du Lac, Wis.

The new 5,000-square-feet museum offers an in-depth look at the heritage and history of Mercury Marine, which was formed in Cedarburg, Wis., in 1939 but moved to Fond du Lac seven years later.

“Mercury Marine has such a rich history and it’ll be a joy to share that with folks across the state of Wisconsin and around the world as they visit our museum,” said Mark Schwabero, president of Mercury Marine. “Even if you aren’t a boater you will still be able to see how Mercury has played a vital role in this community.”

In addition to marine engines, the museum showcases snowmobiles, chainsaws and motorized bikes once engineered and manufactured by Mercury, and even a prototype lawnmower. Exhibits include a look at Mercury’s mysterious Lake X testing facility in Florida. Also displayed is the first engine built by Kiekhaefer.

The museum is located inside the Children’s Museum of Fond du Lac at 75 W. Scott Street. Admission to the museum is $1, which will be donated to a different charity each month.
