We were on our way back to Milwaukee after a week traipsing around Michigan and Ontario. But when we saw the sign on the freeway for Copper Culture State Park, and having recently seen a great exhibit on the region's Archaic Period at the Field...More

Nothing but a small house. Not much to look at but a decent walking trail. There is a buried Halloween skeleton to dig up. Only gets about 4 visitors a day.

We arrived at opening time of 11am and the museum was closed up tight. About 11:15 the docent arrived to open it and set off the alarm which brought an officer. An exciting beginning to our visit. It is a small museum which offers insight...More

I took the kids here to check it out. It was basically a parking lot, a field with a sign in it, and a pavillion. Not much, or anything, to do here. The kids were confused as to why I brought them to this place.
