The city-operated museum and park uncovers the vivid history of life during the 1670's when the Ojibwa, Huron and French lifestyles met in Saint Ignace. Museum exhibits show Ojibwa culture and traditions, the first contact with the French and the site's rich archaeological past. This is also where the French Jesuit Mission was located where Father Marquette resided and is is the final resting place for Father Jacques Marquette.
The Museum provides both indoor and outdoor exhibits which allow you a glimpse into the Ojibwa culture and the lifestyles of the Huron. Exhibits and interpretation includes cultural tribal connections with Great Lakes fish and fishing.
