I planned this stop months ago, knowing we were going thru the UP. This is one of the best transportation museums I have ever been to. I am a snowmobiler so I have a strong interest. But my wife really enjoyed the place and actually videos the entire place for me! They have sleds back to the 1950's and a lot of memorabilia around snowmobiles. Lots of things to buy. Stop there and you won't be disappointed!

I'm not a snowmobile person I never owned one. but I do enjoy classic autos and machinery. This place was way better than I thought it would be. Some really cool snowmobiles and History even had some made mostly of wood and some homemade.

This museum has a wide array of antique snowmobiles to look at, and my teenaged daughter was pretty excited by the vintage clothes in the back. When you go, you can even learn the answer to the question, when was the term “snowmobile” first used? I’m not telling; you’ll have to stop by and find out yourself.

We have often passed the museum and finally stopped in. What a gem. Quite a history on how the snowmobile has changed over the years. Well worth the small $5 to get in.

Driving down Rt 2 in the upper peninsula and saw a sign for snowmobile museum. I like odd little roadside museums so we pulled in - with no idea what to expect. It turned out to be a really fabulous history of snowmobiling. I would recommend this even for the non-aficionado, as the oddball early snowmobiles were really interesting and the machines from the 60's and 70's were just fun. Some of my favorites were the "camper" on skis that you can pull behind a snowmobile, and a 50's era "air sled" which was essentially a grounded airplane on skis - even with painted shark teeth.

My husband loved this place. He would have stayed all day. The variety of machines and how well they are displayed is great. I was impressed at how clean the whole place was. For the money this is well worth it. .

We came in the museum and was blown away from the very beginning. Information about snowmobiles and their history was unbelievable. The personal attention to detail and cleanliness made this museum a must see for anyone heading down US 2 to Newberry. Stop by with questions because you'll get them answered. Awesome family time!

My family stumbled across this place last fall while seeking out the best pasties in the UP. Impressive collection of snowmobiles. We returned to the museum this year with my brother-in-law in tow. At the time of our second visit there were 135 snowmobiles on display. Highly recommend this out of the way gem to anyone passing through. Definitely worth the drive.

My husband is an avid snowmobiler and has restored several sleds himself. He was thrilled to find this place and probably could have spent much more time there. The staff was friendly, knowledgable, and shared my husband's passion for the sport. It is filled with beautifully restored vintage sleds, vintage snow wear and gear, and quirky 'custom' sleds that were really fascinating. $5 adult admission, 16 and under free. Even our two teenaged daughters found it interesting though admittedly not nearly as much as my husband!

Nice warm spot for a snowmobiling break, well worth the $5.00 fee, clean restrooms, beverages available by donation, friendly staff, incredible exhibits and history!
