Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center

Discover history's wild side!

Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center tells the story of the Gunflint Trail. Chik-Wauk is now closed for the 2014 season. We look forward to seeing you in 2015: we reopen May 23, 2015.

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.
Chik-Wauk Museum and Nature Center is open daily from Memorial Day Weekend through the third weekend of October.
