  • Informative and some very nice souvenirs. If you are in the area I recommend visiting. It was definitely worth the tour. Become more educated about the local tribe. It was kind of cold that day I went. So I didn't spend much time outside and they have things out there.
  • The Museum of Ojibwa Culture has free admission for all, but welcomes donations. This is a very small museum in a historically significant location, a must-see for historians of all ages. The exhibits are beautifully and lovingly arranged, clearly explaining history and tradition from the Ojibwa perspective. Some exhibits are in glass cases, others are hands-on, a good mix. I brought a foreign exchange student, a disabled teenager and a high-energy 10 year old to the museum, and each of us got something different from the experience, but we all agreed that it was the best stop we made up north. The museum is autism-friendly and sensory-friendly. All items in the gift shop are made by Native American craftsmen/women, and the staff can answer any questions that you have. Thank you for a great day!
  • Nice little area for kids to learn about our culture, would like a Touch of Finland store around too. But it's nice that this thing didn't close, it is small but something to check out. I'm considering buying some books.
  • So interesting. Things to look at inside and out. Outside are sculptures that show how they fished, what they wore, what they lived in. Inside there are two videos playing, displays of things they used and made in daily life. There's a coloring area for kids. It's bigger than it looks, but still small enough to look at and read everything in about an hour. An interactive wall shows where the Ojibwa traveled. Then there's a gift shop. They offer walking tours on certain days but we weren't in town that late. More outside was the burial place of Father Jaques Marquette, a statue of him and a fountain. It's free to get in, but they take donations.
  • The gift shop items are alot cheaper than other places we visited and they run on donation so it's free. The donations certainly must help because the museum portion is well worth it and it has very interesting things to see and read about. Highly recommend for any U.P. Trip.
