My favorite piece is the video that traces the history of the area from the Native Americans to present day. The matching images were very helpful, and I enjoyed having the historical perspective as we visited the Two Harbors area for the weekend.

We were just walking downtown and decided to pop in. Loved this museum! Well worth the 5 admission. Learn about north shore mining, logging, and small town life.

Loved this place. It was very pretty. We walked around the trails and it was beautiful. The rocks down by the river entertained kids for hours. The gift shop had cute things also.
