Amazing amount of history in one building

The displays and knowledge of the 90-year-old attendant who had lived through many years of town history made the visit most enjoyable.

This museum is free and shows the local history of logging and life around Michigamme from early beginnings. Don works the museum and knows a great deal of the history. There are indoor and outdoor exhibits, including old machinery and vehicles. It's worth the visit to learn about the past in this small town.
