This is an excellent museum for learning the history of the native Americans of mid Michigan. From the beginning all the way to the present time. The only disappointing part is the appearance of the outside of the building. The landscaping definitely need some attention but the inside is very beautiful.

I went to the cultural center today as an add-on to our Lutheran Church Synod Assembly, and didn't quite know what to expect. This museum is just stunning! Very well laid out, very well thought out, and beautifully arranged to make the most of the subject matter. Extremely educational and interesting. Our guide, a young man named Zach Jackson, was...

I love this museum. Ziibiwing houses tribal artifacts from the Saginaw Chippewa and tells the story the Great Lakes Anishinabek. There are many wonderful permanent exhibits, including a model lodge that is large enough to walk into. I loved the interactive nature of the exhibits, the design is very intuitive and makes your self-guided tour pleasurable. They also have changing... More

Excellent place to visit, very educational and appropriate for families with young children. We were there with our 2.5 year old, she loved the exhibition and made it in good shape thru the end. Nice gift shop and very warm and kind staff. There is mini cafeteria so you can get some chips, soda/water and candy.

The 5 Star Rating is based on what it is; it's not the Chicago Natural History Museum or a huge place that covers the world, so don't go expecting that. It's a museum and cultural center specific to the Anishinabe, provided by the Saginaw Chippewa tribe, and you can see it all in one to two hours. You won't find... More

This is an awesome place. Such pretty walls and pictures. The actual water park was quite busy with children. I will definitely be bringing my grandchildren again

Wonderfully done. Very good for all ages. Tells the story of the Anishinabe Culture in an unvarnished fashion, warts and all. Highly recommend for a nice break from waterpark or casino. Grandkid's ,7 and 10, were interested for over 2 hours, and another hour in the very nice gift shop. Staff was very helpful, friendly and knew their history.

This Anishinabe Culture and Lifeway Center is located on the Isabella Indian Reservation in Mid-Michigan. This center, established in 2004, honors the Anishinabe ancestor, who protected and passed down cultural knowledge, languages and teachings. Admission is reasonable and the gift centers' merchandise is authentic. Spent an enjoyable afternoon. The plants in the outdoor garden are labeled.
