It’s a great lite place to understand and start the Iron Belle bike trail in summer. Now still closed due to snow. The current trail is paved for 7 miles with great interpretations. Something to do with family and friends

Nothing special but it is just off the ATV and snowmobile trail so it is a good place to stop view maps and ask questions as the staff is very helpful.

Thanks for your kind words and appreciation for Ironwood's history. We are fortunate to have a great historic train Depot to house the museum artifacts. Visit us again the next time you are in town. We'd love repeat visitors!

Old converted railroad depot. Full of old memorabilia, and relics from the past. Has a lot of interesting artifacts from the mining days. Lots to read about and see. Well worth your time.
