“Fully immersive, interactive exhibits”
The new Marquette Regional History Center opened March 7, 2011 with three times the exhibit space of the former museum and fully immersive and interactive exhibits! All of the exhibits were built and created by local artists and craftsmen. The C. Fred Rydholm Gathering Hall, named in honor of noted local historian seats 200 people and is available for rental for weddings, showers, retirement parties, conferences, class reunions, fund-raisers or any other event. A projection dome tops the reception hall which displays moving lights at night. Included in the design is a children’s classroom for visiting school groups to do hands-on projects. There's also an outdoor green space with an amphitheater, educational gardens, and Spring & Third Museum Store which sells works by local artists and regional books on history.
Especially if you're visiting the UP and don't know too much about the history of the area, you must stop in and see this beautiful new museum. The displays are thoughtfully arranged and informative. You won't believe how far snowmobile technology has come until you see where it started!
