Shark on the Lake
Open daily | *Shine only* | 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Shark on the Lake is a family-friendly, outdoor space with local Love Creamery ice cream and local drinks available for purchase. The perfect tour enhancement!
Looking for things to do and get out of the house, right?
Imagine you and your family enjoying a perfect Duluth day on Glensheen’s Lake Superior shoreline with ice cream and a drink in hand after your self-guided tour in the mansion. The kids can throw rocks into the Lake and eat local Love Creamery ice cream while you and your partner sit down and enjoy a local beer, glass of wine, or signature cocktail – the Sharktail. (Non-alcoholic beverages are also available.)
Swim at your own risk. A life guard is not on duty.

Find the Sharks
July 1 – August 31
There are 16 sharks hidden throughout the mansion for you to I-spy! You can find all 16 on the General Admission tour. Once you have found all 16 sharks, at the end of the tour you will receive one REAL LIFE shark tooth as your prize.
We just launched a new, family-friendly, community space on our Lake Superior shoreline called Shark On The Lake. To celebrate the opening, we’ve hidden sharks inside the mansion for you to I-spy! Then when you’ve found them all, you can revel in your shark-finding skills with ice cream at Shark on the Lake.
