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

Early july. Storms coming in but it added to the atmosphere. Loved the walk down the break and watching the ore tankers load up. Everytjing seemed larger than life.

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

For three bucks it's worth the stop. Interesting stuff inside. Loved the history of the railroad and the two locomotives outside. The Edna was closed, so we couldn't tour her.

Housed in the old train depot, this probably isn't the experience for the "serious" museum visitor. Think small town pride with all the things Aunt Edna's family donated when she died. Still, the whole thing made me smile. I only wish it had more on the iron ore industry and it's associated railroads. They do have the first and last... More
