  • A guest on our trip was interested in agates and this led us into the Gitche Gumee Agage and History Museum. You could spend quite a bit of time here if you have an interest i the learning about rocks...  more »
  • Karen, the owner, is a wonderful teacher. We had a free tutorial when we visited. I enjoyed reading the books she wrote.  more »
  • Nice shop for all your gem and mineral needs. The owner answer all questions on the Lake Superior agate and other rocks found. Very knowledgeable on the area.
  • Check open hours on their website. They're... unusual. Store sells agates, various interesting rocks, and copper stuff. Museum is $1. Plan to spend about 1/2 hour. 1/2 is rare and unique rock-related stuff. 1/2 is a completely random - but all cool - collection of historical items, homesteading artifacts, self-sustaining farm life items, antiques... odd, but neat and totally worth $1 measly dollar.
