  • The Shrine of the Pines is truly one of a kind. A single hunting guide dug up pine roots and with only hand tools crafted beds, chairs, tables, chandaliers, etc.What made it even better was the young ...  more »

  • Very unusual collection of furniture made from pine roots. Great tour about the history and how items were made. Great lace to stop and see when in the area.  more »
  • Please do call ahead. There is only two people that run the place with no backup. So if one or both get sick it does end up closed.
  • Call before you go! My family and I drove all the way there and it was closed, and supposed to be open!
  • Great place to visit, beautful woodworking The building structure is amazing in it self, houseing so much more inside. Every piece of furniture is uniquely hand crafted ..A step back in time when people were totally self sufficient....A must stop when in Baldwin Michigan....
  • My husband and I were in Big Rapids and were looking for things to do in the area. We drove less than 30 minutes to see the Shrine in the Pines, figuring a $5 per person admission wasn't too much of a gamble. We are so, so glad we went. We spent about an hour at the museum, but it's fantastic and we're taking friends and all of our kids back next week. It's an incredibly unique collection - something you wouldn't find anywhere else in the world. The only negative is that this isn't more widely known and easily accessible to larger cities. It's 100% worth the drive and the very inexpensive cost of a personal tour - which everyone gets. The history behind each piece is incredible. Any woodworker would absolutely love this museum. It's magnificent work and I had no idea that virgin pines grew so large - 7 feet in diameter! I can not recommend making the trip enough. There is a place to tip your tour guide and we didn't have cash on hand, but he definitely deserved a tip. :)
  • It's totally worth the $5 admission. Quick in and out; good for those who don't like time-sink sightseeing.
