  • Wonderful history of the area in the museum portion. Rocks from around the world as well as Lake Superior. Karen is a wealth of knowledge and a wonderful artisan using agates.
  • Great place to learn more about local history and agate hunting! They also have unique gifts and materials on agates, rocks and minerals.
  • I love this store. The owner, Karyn, is very knowledgeable and she makes some amazing window hangings with agate slices. If you want to visit, be sure to check the store hours!
  • Owner very personable and very knowledgeable. Best prices on rocks.
  • Interesting collection of rocks and minerals, but the owner was rude.
