  • This is a wonderful small museum full of local history and artwork. The staff was extremely helpful and had many suggestions about the area and local attractions. 
  • The Besser Museum was full of surprises. We were able to see a very extensive Dali print exhibit and walk along recreated streets of old Alpena. The lower level has an amazing collection of taxidermie...  read more »
  • The museum entertained the family, including a 10 and 7 year old for over 2 hours. The children especially enjoyed looking for fossils outside. 
  • If you haven't been here then your life is probably really boring. I personally like the planetarium except for the fact that they keep doing the same space tour thing. I also really like that right now they are selling astronaut ice cream (dehydrated ice cream bars). If you haven't been to this place you should go, and even if you don't like any of the art there, they have many other activities for both parents and children. This place is a great way to get away from your troubles that you are having at the time. They also have lots of places that you can buy stuff. Go there. Have fun. Be happy.
  • This is a great place for anyone; any age! The kids love it and so do the parents :) I especially loved the Fossil Park, Avenue of Shops, Great Lakes Fish Exhibit, the Foucault Pendulum and all of the great rotating art galleries. Right now they are exhibiting Salvador Dali's work of Dante's Divine Comedy. They say this museum is "3 Museums in One" and I believe it...all of the exhibits ranged from art to history to science.
  • Besser Museum is amazing, and always changing, so if you haven't been in awhile, check it out. Recently we took friends from out of town to visit the museum and they loved it!
