  • One of the only places we found open in Alpena to visit during COVID, but worth a stop any time. My kids adored the planetarium and the outside area is a real treat. Toddlers will love the nature...  more »
  • There was a lot to see and learn about the history of the area. Did not expect it to be so informative. There was something for the kids and adults to enjoy seeing.  more »
  • There are so many exhibits at this museum. The local artist gallery is in constant rotation, and beautifully showcases a wide selection of artists. There is a wildlife exhibit downstairs that is well kept. The exhibits and individual displays are well labeled and include a wealth of interesting information. There is a fossil hunting site outside in the back. Fun for all ages. Several hiking paths as well as paved walkways showcase historic structures. Could easily spend the afternoon taking it all in. The staff is friendly and well informed.
  • This is an amazing little museum of local heritage and has some cool old cars and a nice display of local animals. Wonderful exhibition in summer with old school house and home in back from 1800s.
