Gitche Gumee Agate and History Museum reviews
What a wonderful and delightful surprise this was! Karen took the time to engage my newly rock-obsessed children (6&8) and teach us a ton in a short time. I was so impressed with how quickly she... more »
I love rocks and this is a great place to pick up those agates that you couldn’t find at the beach. Karen is very informative and willing to share her knowledge. Thank you m for being open during... more »
Haven't been able to get to the north shore much in the last few years but always, always stop in at Karen's place and have pretty much since she resurrected it every time in the U.P. It's a true gem of a museum, small but full of great local history and lots of great rock examples. To catch her not busy and have her go through your trip's finds with you is REAL treasure and practically priceless. In the past she's answered her phone and opened up for us off hours, sold us her used visors, sold us her last agate picker....Can't say enough what a great lady, what an awesome little place and how much of a deal I feel it is every time I spend money on rocks, gifts or her time at the Gitche Gumee. Some places deserve more than asking admission, this is one of them. As always, can't wait to visit again!
Stopped in this place on vacation today. I had not been there in a long time. It was still as splendid as before. I am a nerd for petrology so I can get lost in here. The place may be small but there is a wealth of knowledge within its walls. I highly recommend a quick stop here. It is one of the cheapest gift shops in town and the staff are great.
