Explore Wisconsin’s Copper Culture History At This Underrated State Park

A tiny Wisconsin State Park has an enormously important history. The Copper Culture State Park shares a bit of the story of the people who lived in Wisconsin thousands of years before European settlers arrived. Long before pioneers dug mines into the hills of the Upper Peninsula, this culture was making good use of the region’s copper riches. It’s an incredible story – read on to learn more about the history you’ll discover at this Wisconsin State Park.

There’s no admission to visit the park. The museum is open seasonally, from Memorial Day until Labor Day. A tour guide is available to give an in-depth tour if desired.  Learn more about the park on the state Department of Natural Resources website.
