  • We found the history and carvings to be quite interesting. The Circle Trail is about 3/4 of a mile and was a leisure walk as it is mostly level and is paved. It was fun to hear Winnewissa Falls before...  more »
  • What a great, relaxing and soothing walk thru nature to look up at this majestic site. And on a hot, hot day, the cool breeze in front of the fall is wonderful and refreshing.  more »
  • Good learning experience. Not a whole lot to see, but definitely worth the visit. We were only there for a few minutes right before they closed, so didn't get to see everything. Walked part of the trail, but didn't know we were supposed to pay admission, oops. $7 admission charge for adults seems reasonable.
  • Nice staff and paved walking paths. We pushed a stroller with no issue. Museum teaches a little about the geology and a lot about the native people and traditions of the area.
  • Learned a lot about Native American culture, geology, and history. Plus, there is a great trail with some excellent sights. The kids really enjoyed watching the pipestone carving.
  • Full of history. Great place to take kids to learn about why Pipe Stone is a scared place.
  • Always beautiful. Friendly staff. Take lots of pictures.
