I highly recommend touring the exhibits in this facility. Temporary exhibits are relevant and changing, while the permanent gallery enables the visitor to better understand Anishinabe culture. Beautiful to see the youth involved in the exhibits.

Very educational. Lovely jewelry in the gift store. Be sure to listen to the narratives as you go through the museum and watch the short films about the tribes. Great history treat for children.

The Ziibiwing Center is a Native American Museum on the outskirts of Mt. Pleasant. The exhibits are the quality one would find in the Field in Chicago or the Simthsonian in D.C. excellent!

Such an amazing history and the exhibits are really well done. We had a tour guide who told us about native beliefs and pointed out the symbols and their meanings in some of the exhibits.

I visited the Ziibiwing Center as part of an assignment for a college paper. I was amazed at the amount of information and the exhibits on display. I encourage everyone to visit and experience this native American culture.
