  • There is always something new and exciting at the Besser Museum. We try to go on the free afternoon they offer each week. The trails are always a hit as is the rock area outside. Of course, the taxidermy is amazing and appeals to kids and adults of all ages. So much to see and do!
  • Enjoying a wonderful early morning Blue Super Moon Total Eclipse with activities, coffee, donuts, friends and community members. Thank you to the Besser Museum for hosting such great events!
  • This is a wonderful small museum. It takes you back in time to the history of Alpena. A must do before you start to explore the region. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Provided me with a lot of useful information, must places to visit during my stay.
  • Great place to take the kids. The planetarium staff is very patient with toddlers.
  • Great stop to spend a couple hours... Lots of interesting taxidermy...
