This is a very well done museum that tells the story of copper mining in the local area. A good location across the street from the Keweenaw National Historical Park Visitors Center.

The curators and archivists did a spectacular job with this museum. The displays were very well done. For such a small town museum, the detail and professionalism of the displays were surprising and thrilling. Very well done. We loved it.
