  • Karen opened for us for a private visit. Many beautiful rocks and minerals to admire from all around the world. She was very knowledgable and showed us several unique rocks. Lovely gift shop, went home with lots of pretty pieces.
  • I absolutely LOVE this place! I found out about it last summer and scheduled half my vacation around coming up to Grand Marais just to come here, walk the shore, and see the Agate Lady. Karen is pretty awesome. She really knows her stuff and she's wonderful to chat with. It's so refreshing to find other people as passionate (or maybe obsessed haha) about rocks as I am. Her books are a wonderful read; even my friends who could care less about rocks found her "Rocks Inside Out" book interesting. All her rock specimens in the shop portion of Gitche Gumee are so reasonably priced and you can tell she definitely is passionate about what she's doing. The history part of the museum is great and you can spend forever in there looking at all the historical pieces and rock specimens, so get out there and go see it! I'm so happy for her that she's finally getting her Agate Lady rock shop under construction! I'll definitely be back. She's a cool lady! Lots of respect for her and what she does.
