Gitche Gumee Agate and History Museum
Attraction details
Reviewed July 9, 2012

This museum and shop are definitely worth a stop, especially if you're into rocks, agates and local history. The first half of the space is more of a shop, but for only $1 you can go into the museum portion of the building. Not only will you learn a few things, but your eyes should be impressed with the natural creations on display. The staff is also very friendly and knowledgeable - so if you have questions, ask away!

Great little museum with a long history. Nice selection of rocks for sale and agates if you don't find your own on the beach.

The lady who runs it is kind of eccentric, but she has some good information. Since this area is a hotbed for agate, she has quite a bit of information about it if you're interested. The museum is very small. It's in a house on the outskirts of town, but worth the visit. They have interesting rocks for sale, many of which are very cheap.
