  • A wonderful place to learn the beautiful and colorful history of Native Americans in general and the Mille Lacs band of Ojibwa in particular. Excellent retail store attached for children to adults for decorative and educational products. Affiliated with the MN State Historical Society that is a wonderful alliance for continuity of financial support and in depth research resources.
  • Loved this museum. Friendly & informative staff. Four Seasons Room tour was wonderful and they had a craft for the kids.
  • It's a really well put together museum. Our presenter was very informative and knowledgeable as he was a part of the community himself.
  • This is an amazing museum with employees being wonderfully professional & always open for questions. We always recommend this remarkable place for tourists everywhere!
  • My favorite place on Mille Lacs! But remember when visiting that the Trading Post and the Museum are separate buildings and have separate hours. It pays to call ahead! The museum is closed in the winter except when they have events going on.
