Very pretty

Loved this place. It was very pretty. We walked around the trails and it was beautiful. The rocks down by the river entertained kids for hours. The gift shop had cute things also.

My wife and I stopped here on the way through town and were surprised by the Train Depot. A great way to see some old Locomotives and associated support equipment. It was very nice and unexpected to see this great equipment. We also stopped to see the Edna G Tugboat , the Lighthouse and took the path around the area... More

My husband and I stopped at one of the overlooks near the tunnel, silver Creek cliff. We have the opportunity to speak with a local. She called it the best kept secret. It was definitely a spectacular view of Lake Superior. If you are ever on the area, take the time to stop at the "small stops" on the way.... More

Being a history buff I enjoy all things old It was very interesting to see how people went about their daily lives, before all the "modern necessities" That we have to have today.

We actuly parked in Lake view park, and took the foot path, Lake view walk, around the bay, with breath taking views over the bay, and in mid fall, the leaves and surroundings were beautiful. On our way through the trees we came across some grazing deer, which, ignored us completely, so we took the time to take some great... More

They have really done a good job with all of their displays and information. For the serious museum lover, I would say you would enjoy what this small town has offered here. We spent about an hour checking out the artifacts, reading about the iron ore industry, the railroad, the war, and watching a film. Well worth the $3, or... More
