Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center

Discover history's wild side!

Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center tells the story of the Gunflint Trail.
We are open 10 am to 5 pm daily until October 18th.

Housed in the historic Chik-Wauk Lodge on beautiful Saganaga Lake, Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center presents the area's cultural and natural history through interpretive and interactive exhibits. Learn about the Gunflint Trail's prehistoric beginnings and people who helped shape today’s unique, rural community, including Native Americans, Voyageurs, miners, loggers, resort owners and current residents.

A network of nature trails crisscross Chik-Wauk’s 50-acre grounds. Plan to immerse yourself in the Gunflint Trail forest with Chik-Wauk's family-focused, naturalist program.

Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center is a partnership of the Gunflint Trail Historical Society and Superior National Forest, Gunflint Ranger District.

For all our members and visitors to Chik-Wauk this season we encourage you to stop in and see the progress we are making with the construction of the new nature center.

We will have plenty of parking availble for you to hike our trail system here as well as to visit the museum and  see the temporary exhibit this season.
Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center is open daily from Memorial Day Weekend through the third weekend of October.
