​We offer no facilities, but if you pay museum admission you are welcome to park your RV in our overflow parking area.

We're set off from the highway, so it's quiet at night. It's a perfect location for exploring other area attractions.

Tips for your visit
  • Plan to spend at least 90 minutes. Many spend hours touring our grounds.

  • Last time to start touring is 1 hour before closing.​

  • We accept credit cards.​

  • Tours are self-guided, but we can provide children and school groups with scavenger hunts and other activities on request.​

  • Dress for being outdoors. Our buildings are not heated or cooled and you will be walking outdoors between buildings.

  • Optimum student to chaperone ratio is 8 to 1. Chaperones tour for free, so the more the merrier.

  • Wear sturdy shoes for navigating the boardwalk and uneven ground.

  • Most buildings and accessibility. our restrooms are handicapped accessible. We can provide wheelchairs.

  • Bring snacks or picnic lunches to eat at the museum or a local park. ​We have picnic tables. You'll also find a picnic shelter and playground in Northern Lights Tower Park, just across our parking lot.

  • Soda, water & souvenirs. Beverages and souvenirs are available in the museum store. No admission required to patronize the store.

  • Shopping tip for school groups. To avoid losses, have students make gift shop purchases after touring the museum.

Dogs welcome
Don't forget the leash

Leashed, well-behaved dogs are welcome to tour the museum with their owners. Plan to clean up after your pooch.
