  • This is a great museum on the Gunflint trail. I hope that more and more information and artifacts become part of this museum in the future. This is a great place to bring your family to hike outside and learn about history and nature. They have interactive things for kids to do in the summer and the blueberries are great in late summer! This place is a must if you are on the Gunflint Trail.
