You absolutely must visit “Da Yoopers Museum and Tourist Trap” about 2 miles west (see the giant chainsaw and rifle on the road). It’s a real hoot. A tribute to the off-beat, wacky sense on humor in the UP. Free. There is a gift shop...More

This place was a lot of fun and it's free! My husband and I got a bunch of giggles visiting this place. There is also a decent size gift shop and a smaller rock shop on the side.

It's free. It's corny, and there's things to see. They've got a lot of really silly displays, a gift shop, and a rock store. Take the time and check it out and then go into the shops and wander around and see if there's anything...More

A must see in da' U.P. Clever 'sculptures' and neat stuff in the store including some great dishware - a little bit of everything and most of it will make you chuckle.

funny,laughing,joking things to read & see. If you have a belly funny style then you can enjoy this stop. Not too far out of the way. Crazy ideas and things to see. Nice gift shop also

Ya gotta stop, I would be surprised if you bought anything but you gotta stop and see this place. Somebody has too much winter on their hands and must build this stuff but it is pretty amusing.

I've driven by a few times, and have all their music, so now the boy notices and we stop. Clean bathrooms for sure, and all the usual tourist (or local) stuff geared to the location. Worth the stop. Do it.

Clearly if you are passing you need to stop. They obviously get their yooper stereotypes and play well into. Most everything there was worth a good chuckle. Clearly make the stop might be a little weird to some but do it and enjoy
