One of the few great things left in Michigan lol. I remember travelling here when my HS basketball team would play Cedarville, it was always the most anticipated trip of the year.

After consulting TripAdvisor, my blind husband and I had been looking forward to visiting this museum. Our experience turned out to be very disappointing.

Love going up and seeing all the artifacts and movie reels. It never gets old, and it's FREE! Make time to watch the longer reel, the details are worth it.

Local history, doesn't take a lot of time, and gives a good background to the straits of Mackinac area.
