The Tahquamenon Logging Museum
This designated State Historic Site is located on M-123 just north of Newberry.
Situated on 29 acres on the shores of the Tahquamenon River, the museum features artifacts from Michigan's early days of lumbering. Facilities include an authentic cook shack, original C.C.C. building, music pavilion, picnic area, nature trail, boardwalk and Gift Shop.
Take a tour of the museum, see a slide presentation of early logging in Michigan, view the many artifacts, visit an original family dwelling, take a walk down the nature trail and stroll the boardwalk which takes you to a spectacular view of the Tahquamenon River.
The museum is open Memorial Day weekend through September 30, 2016.
Join us for one of our delicious Lumberjack Breakfasts cooked on the old wood stove and served in the Cook Shack. Breakfast includes bacon, eggs, homemade sausage, pancakes, and fried potatoes.
