  • It was the highlight of our trip to Michigan! I learned so much about my heritage. I can't wait to return with my other two children. I wish I had more money to buy some of the gorgeous jewelry they had available for purchase.
  • Awesome gem telling the history of our local native Americans. I really enjoyed the motion activated displays and 2 movie theaters. The prophecies that guided them are uncanny, that there were people that were red, white, yellow, and black even before any contact with Europeans. They have a great flood in their history too. For those who have posted earlier about finding the displays showing the broken treaties and illness that came with the Europeans upsetting it is the history of their people and is our story of how our interactions were, even if it makes us uncomfortable it needs to be remembered. I am shocked that I didn't know that they were not made American citizens until 1924, and unable to vote, in their Homeland and fighting in wars, even WW I. Eye opening and beautiful displays of a balanced and centered existence. Really worth the time and much more value than the admission of $6.50 would lead you to believe. For the person complaining about foreign made goods-- every souvenir shop has trinkets that are affordable for tourists and meant for kids. Also on display are artisan made jewelry and sweetgrass baskets that are some of the best I've ever seen. These are of course behind the counter and not easily accessed, and signed by the artists. There is art and real native crafts here too, you just have to look.
