|Welcome to the Baraga County Historical Museum!
The museum is located on US 41 in Baraga, Michigan, on the shores of L'Anse Bay (Keweenaw Bay). The museum is owned and managed by the Baraga County Historical Society, a non-profit organization (IRS 501C). The mission of the BCHS is to collect, display and preserve the rich history of Baraga County's past. The displays at the museum highlight many of these significant events.
The Museum is barrier free and provides a park area for persons to enjoy a picnic or just sit and take in the view of beautiful Keweenaw Bay. The setting on the bay has a rich historic significance to the Baraga County Historical Society. As you look out over the bay, you can see the historic Red Rocks and the Lac View Desert Trail. Looking north, you can see Sandpoint where ancient artifacts have been carbon dated to be more than a 1000 years old.
The Museum is open to the public from June until the end of September. The hours of operation are 11AM to 3PM Tuesdays through Saturdays (additional hours may be arranged). The admission fee is $2 adults, $1 teens while children under 12 are admitted free when with an adult.
