This is not the kind of small town museum where everyone's old junk has been donated - the professional touch of the park service made each display appealing, a mix of individual sample people's experiences blended in with the broader history. I learned a lot about the copper mining history on the Keweenaw Peninsula, and the people who were part... More

This park designation is an overlay of many sites on the far tip of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. There are scenic drives, towns, parks, harbors highlighting the peoples and industrial heritage of this beautiful region.

This is centered in Calumet, but there are many places to visit around the area. You get a great sense of local history and of the huge mining efforts in the region. Well preserved and documented.

Amazing place. Excellent exhibits, videos and displays. We learned so much about the copper mining era, the town and the decline after copper mining ended. Gorgeous building, excellent restoration, nice guides who are very knowledgeable.

This is easy to find when we were there 2 pm Saturday there were not many people. There are three floor it does have an elevator. If you are familiar Historical parks they show would life was like during the heyday of an area and time this is copper mining in the Calumet area.

The Historic Park Headquarters is in the newly refurbished original location of the Masons and the Oddfellows. Interesting exhibits are on three floors and some have phone hook-ups to use to listen to actual recordings of former copper miners, etc. Touring the museum on an overcast day was an unexpected pleasure! Definitely a wonderful place for all ages!

The Keneewaw Nat'l Historical Park itself covers 100s of square miles. The center in Calumet has a good display of artifacts and information to give a hint at life in an isolated mining area.

We loved this museum! Creative and interactive exhibits. Great source for historical background to the region. And it's free! Ranger David at the desk was super. My 9-year old ephes now wants to follow in his footsteps!

What makes this park so different is that it is spread around Calumet. You can find markers all around the town, or you can go to the headquarters for more information. While we were there, the park was offering a Ghost Signs of Calumet walking tour. The park staff is very knowledgeable and moves at a good pace for everyone... More

The planners of this historical park had a really great idea. Allow a large number of museums and displays to become a part. There is everything from a trip into an old copper mine to a general overview museum (and excellent film) in the visitors' center. This is a fascinating city with a fantastic collection of red sandstone buildings and... More
