  • Staff are amazing! An educational and enlightening self guided tour shares some of the Ojibwa history. There is a spot for kids to let out some creativity. Beautiful art adorns the walls and the garden. Definitely worth the stop!!
  • I am a Sault Saint Marie tribal member but I live outside of Michigan. I visit every couple of years and when I do I always stop by the museum. They are continually improving and have a lot of great information. There is also a kids section that my daughter has fun in. I also like the collection of books they have for sale. I would have a difficult time finding them elsewhere. I would recommend the museum to anyone looking to learn more about the Ojibwa culture.
