tours - virtualMadeline Island Historic Museum
While residents of Madeline Island have always been separated from mainland Wisconsin by Lake Superior, they haven't always been isolated. The island has been an active hub for Ojibwe people, French-Canadian fur traders, Scandinavian fishermen, modern vacationers and others. The Madeline Island Museum preserves pieces that document the cultural and economic influences on the island, from Jesuit robes to sewing machines. Read our feature story about Madeline Island.
