Very cool. Really liked the video about the family. No charge to get in....just a donation. You must see the one down the street also. That is worth a donation also

“Noce Museum”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

They have done a nice job with this museum. Outside fur traders shared history of the culture and quality of the museum and artifacts were excellent.

“Nice overview of the Ojibwa culture”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Not a huge museum by any means, you could probably do the whole thing in 1/2 hour. But, entry is by donation, so you can give as much or as little as you like. The store is also quite nice, all crafted items were made by Native Peoples of North America.

“Good for younger children”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

Museum is geared for younger children; they did have a nice small gift shop with interesting books. It will not take long to walk through. Really nice view in front of the museum.

“One of the best museums of Indian Culture”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

We all have our own criteria for what is good and what is wanting. However, for myself, the visit to the Ojibwa Museum of culture in August of 1012 - inside the building and all over the grounds - was an inspiration. I love and respect all the gifts our American Indians have shared with us. I regret all the wrongs explorers and colonists did to so many Indian tribes. It is with gratitude, then, that I walked through this museum and rejoiced in their accomplishments. The video on the creation of the birch bark canoe was so amazing, that I would like to purchase that video - and hope the shop sells them. The friendliness of the folks in the museum shop was delightful, and the care of the interior of the museum as well as the spotless appearance and interest of the grounds was amazing.
This is a place that merits 10 stars! We will come back again!
