  • 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....
  • It's totally worth the $5 admission. Quick in and out; good for those who don't like time-sink sightseeing.
  • An amazing place with beautiful woodwork.
  • 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. :)
  • My parents had taken me here when I was 3 and I've never forgotten the place. Now a mother myself, I'd love to take him there!
