“Small, but interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Admission price is a donation. Very small, but interesting. Nice gift shop. Nice to see items made by locals being sold in the shop.

“A great museum with fun and interesting things for the whole family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

This museum is very informative and entertaining. I appreciated all the authentic native made art in the shop upfront. The exhibits did a good job of teaching about native american culture and heritage. I could really tell the employees appreciate and love what they do.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

The large native lodge in back was interesting. There is a gift shop with native-made articles, and a small museum, along with a statue of Father Marquette. It is free and there is ample parking, even for campers, behind the museum.

“Get out of the rain activity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

Went with a friend and two kids. I thought it was pretty nice for a small museum, but I really like history. Worth your stop. Kids may not enjoy it much though.
