Immerse Yourself in Ever-Evolving Stories

Tower of History

Time doesn’t stop in the U.P. But you’ll easily see how our cultures, work and love of the Great Lakes and the wilderness have shaped (and continue to make us) who we are. More than a hundred museums, historic sites and homes throughout the U.P. tell our centuries of fascinating stories and give inspiration for the future.

In the U.P. you can take a ferry to Mackinac Island and step back to pre-Revolutionary War days. Explore from county to county the lives of the people who traded furs. Learn how our trees turned into Henry Ford’s “Woodies” or mountains of paper or lumber. See sunken ships. Rappel into the depths of copper mines. Hear the stories of America’s greatest skiers. Ramble through ghost towns. Play with toys from our past. Use all of your senses at our interactive children’s museum. These museums and historic sites will spark the imaginations and hearts of toddlers to teens to grandparents.

Come be part of our story.
