Newly Opened in June 2001- We are located on the shores of beautiful Lake Vermilion and on the grounds of Fortune Bay Resort, Casino & Golf Course. We are dedicated to telling the Bois Forte Ojibwe story-as our name-Atisokanigamig or LEGEND HOUSE tells.

Public response to our museum has been very positive, we hear over and over again how worthwhile & meaningful the museum is.

The national Media Association has awarded our museum an award for interpretation. Additionally, we are featured on the cover of the Iron Range Resources’ Minnesota Tourism magazine. We are fast gaining recognition and becoming an integral part of a Northern MN visit and destination.

In addition to award winning displays, we have a birch bark dwelling and tipi on our grounds, and a path that leads the visitor to the remains of an 1866 gold mine.

We are group friendly, with plenty of parking and room for buses, we are also handicap friendly and offer the free use of a wheel chair.

The tour takes about an hour not counting visits to the outdoor exhibits. We would love to have you visit us and will work hard to make your time with us educational and full of fun.
