I went to college at NMU back in the early 1990's, but never made it up to Ishpeming to tour it. I was in the area recently and said I had to! I'm glad I did, it shows through the use of a video and static displays the progression of skiing and organized skiing. Ishpeming, MI is the home of organized skiing, which is why the Hall of fame is there.
Well worth the time I took to tour it, no admission charge, but I did leavew a small donation.

I've stopped here a few times before, but never for recreation until this past weekend. It's a neat little museum and definitely worth a stop. (Easy to get to, right on US-41.)

I'm not really into skiing or snowboarding, but I found it interesting. It's very meticulously maintained. Free admission, but worth a donation on your way out.

A fabulous trove of ski memorabilia is archived in this museum. The fellow that was there the day we went was gracious, welcoming, and extremely informative.

This place is stuck in the 70’s. It consists of photos, plaques, skis against the wall,
You get the idea- they need videos, interactive displays etc. to get the space up to date for contemporary expectations for a museum that charged to enter.

My husband is an avid skier and he loved our visit here. This is a self-guided tour though an abundance of skiing history, equipment and professionals as well as Olympic memorabilia. A must-stop for ski enthusiasts.

Lots of info on the history of skiing and olympic stars. Would have been nice to label the ski equipment by year, brand, type, etc.

Such a great view into ski history both Olympic and otherwise. The curator does an amazing job of having the museum truly do its purpose. I will warn you though if you are not super interested in skiing history or museology you will want to skip this stop. Lastly the curator and staff are incredibly nice, helpful and take great pride in what they do.

We found this museum just before they closed as we were driving through. The Ishpeming area was prominent in the early days of organized skiing and ski jumping. The collection includes a great deal of early equipment and pictures of the early days of the sport. There are also photos and biographies of the over 400 inductees to the Hall of Fame in skiing and snowboarding. Although some of the exhibits need some freshening, it is still a fascinating stop, especially for skiers and boarders. The building itself is architecturally interesting too.

In addition to endless photos of those inducted into the Hall of Fame, this place offers some scattershot exhibits on the history of skiing, mostly focused locally but also with some references to early developments in Europe. There are lots and lots of skis on display, and exhibits on the development of chairlifts and skiing in the military. My husband (the skier in the family) found it all very interesting. Myself (a non-skier) not so much. The building is very modern and dramatic from the outside, with a ski jump profile, which made the old-fashioned, poorly presented exhibits inside even more disappointing. The one man on duty went out of his way to explain that he knew nothing whatsoever about the exhibits, which added to the general air of disarray
