All the history one could care to take in about the PRNL and local businesses that grew along with it. Very community-centric and well presented by the minds behind Pictured Rocks Cruises. As a local, I’ve found it as a great option for clothing and...More

My suspicion is that this free place is sponsored by the Picture Rocks boat tours. That does not detract from the fact that it is very well done. Great historical pictures and pictures of Picture Rocks. Best of all is the video with very good...More

This is a newer "attraction", and it's free. It's a Munising area museum with interesting displays, and a very informative 15-minute video. Stop in there before or after taking the Pictured Rocks boat tour - it's right up the street within a short walking distance....More

This is a very nice interpretive center for Pictured Rocks. You really should visit this before taking the Pictured Rocks cruise. It adds to your background knowledge of Pictured Rocks.

We've been coming to Munising for years and this is a great addition. Feel is open and new, with displays mixing things and the printed word. Well worth a stop if you want to learn about the history, geology and biology of the area.
