Lake Superior Stories that Continue Today!
A visit to the Madeline Island Museum is an adventure through time, exploring the stories of the diverse peoples and cultures that have called the island home. Your immersive journey traverses four historic structures that combine to form the heart of this modern museum featuring fascinating artifacts and engaging exhibits telling Ojibwe, French, British, and American stories.
In 2022, our temporary exhibitions share stories of Ojibwe culture and persistence through contemporary artwork, including Meeting Nanabozho: Works by Rabbett Before Horses Strickland, and Oshki-Anishinaabeg: Telling Our Stories with Manidoominensag.
