|Welcome to the Baraga County Historical Museum!
The museum is located on US 41 in Baraga, Michigan, on the shore of Keweenaw Bay. The museum is operated by the Baraga County Historical Society, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. The Historical Society's mission is to collect, preserve, and display artifacts and documents connected with Baraga County's cultural heritage and natural resources and to educate the public. Exhibits highlight significant events as well illustrating what everyday life was like 50, 100, or 150 years ago.
The Museum is barrier free and has ample parking for RVs. An area with picnic tables located between the museum and the lake shore provides a place for visitors to enjoy a picnic or just sit and enjoy the view of beautiful Keweenaw Bay. As you look out over straight across the Bay, the Village of L'Anse is visible.
In 2021 the Museum will be open to the public on Wednesday from 3 to 6 p.m. and on Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. beginning the first Friday after Memorial Day until Labor Day weekend. Because we rely on volunteers, hours are subject to change. Please visit our Facebook page for current information. During the off season, the museum is open by appointment only. Admission fees are $2.50 for adults, $1 for teens. Children 12 years and younger are admitted free.
