You can almost smell the biscuits as you wander through a country kitchen, and see how Great Grandma cooked her meals.
Stroll through the Bridal Room and experience the romance of vintage fashion.
Mother's spinning, sewing, knitting, and weaving, making the family's duds, stretched many a mine worker's wages.
Come join us in Grandma's parlor! We've got ragtime on the Victrola!
See the first X-ray machine in the Copper Country, the "painless" dentist equipment, a company pharmacy, and a mine body basket.
Logging histroy in the Keweenaw is often overlooked. It provided fuel, timber, and jobs! See the largest collection of memorabilia in the western U.P.
Music. Music, Music! Every mine had a band, and the Copper Country sang in every language.
