“Wonderful History of the Area!”

The Lake County Historical Society DMuseum
Ranked #9 of 15 things to do in Two Harbors
Attraction details
Reviewed August 22, 2013

My husband and I love museums and had never been inside this one in Two Harbors, even though we'd traveled to the area many times. The museum was FILLED with interesting displays of the area and the people who settled it. In addition, for "train-lovers," there are amazing full-size trains outside that have been used in the area. Although one cannot go inside them, they are fascinating to look at and beautifully maintained. (Thank you, Sherry (sp?) for the additional information you gave us--verbally and in the pamphlet.) If you like history, this wonderful museum is a MUST! I understand that they have many more artifacts, but need more room. I hope this happens soon. For now, I was told they do change-out some displays. I am so glad we took the time to go through the museum! It was a highlight of our day!

This group has done an excellent job preserving their history. They have 4 museums that are really interesting. The Lighthouse, Edna G tug, Depot & 3M museums cost $3pp but if you buy tickets to all 4 you receive $2 off for pp. So 4 people were $40 rather than $48.
On the Edna G we received an excellent tour by the tour guide! It's hard to believe it was in service from 1896 through 1981. The other 3 museums are self guided. The Depot was very interesting also. The Depot has been very nicely preserved. They have quite a bit of historic itmes in this museum.
We really enjoyed seeing a locomotive weighing over a millon tons! Just wish you could climb aboard. The 3M museum was ok. The Lighthouse was very nice, but when it's a self guided tour you just don't get as much out of the visit.

While driving the north shore we noticed a lighthouse sign in two harbors so we pulled off to find it. What a neat area! One of my boys loves trains and was in awe of the large locomotive in your outdoor display area. Wish we got his name but a gentlemen getting things ready in the morning let us get an up close look at the outdoor displays and explained things to us. We were also lucky enough to see a cargo ship in the port that is there. A train came in and we were able to watch it unload ore. There is a small lighthouse there too. Get out and walk around!

The Lake County Historical Society is doing a fantastic job in making the history of this area come alive. Treat yourself to spending some time in Two Harbors finding out about the area.

We loved the military displays, and the locomotives and other transport items outdoors. Very friendly staff.
