The museum is located on US 41 in Baraga, Michigan, on the shore of Keweenaw Bay. The museum is operated by the Baraga County Historical Society, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. The Historical Society's mission is to collect, preserve, and display artifacts and documents connected with Baraga County's cultural heritage and natural resources and to educate the public. Exhibits highlight significant events as well illustrating what everyday life was like 50, 100, or 150 years ago.
The Museum is barrier free. An area with picnic tables located between the museum and the lake shore provides a place for visitors to enjoy a picnic or just sit and enjoy the view of beautiful Keweenaw Bay. As you look out over the bay to the southeast, you can see the historic Red Rocks and the Shrine of the Snowshoe Priest. Looking straight across the Bay, the Village of L'Anse is visible.
The Museum is open to the public on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. During the off season, the museum is open by appointment only. Admission fees are $2 for adults, $1 for teens while children under 12 are admitted free.
