George W. Brown Jr. Ojibwe Museum & Cultural Center
The George W. Brown Jr. Ojibwe Museum & Cultural Center preserves and promotes the history and culture of the Lac du Flambeau band of Lake Superior Ojibwe. Opened in 1989, the museum features exhibits and dioramas depicting Ojibwe clothing, canoes, artifacts and crafts (items from other Ojibwe bands are included as well). Highlights include a four seasons diorama, which depicts how the Ojibwe used to live in each season, and a 24 foot dug out canoe. Another exhibit explores the history of the fur trade. Various cultural programs and art classes are also offered. The museum is named after George W. Brown Jr., a tribe member who long advocated for a place devoted to Ojibwe culture and history.
