Welcome to Grand Portage National Monument!

Where is the Monument? The whole park! National monuments are "little gems" within the National Park Service which tell stories no less inspiring than the nation's Washington Monument. The Antiquities Act of 1906 authorized the President to declare by public proclamation landmarks, structures, and other objects of historic or scientific interest situated on lands owned or controlled by the government to be national monuments. A national monument is intended to preserve at least one nationally significant resource.

The Historic Depot is open Memorial Day weekend thought Indigenous People's Day in October. Visit any time of year to explore Heritage Center exhibits, trails, and events next to Lake Superior. This section provides important information for visiting the monument and region.

For gas or diesel fuel, groceries, fishing and sporting supplies, stop at the Trading Post.
For gas, money exchange, and souvenirs, stop at Ryden's Border Store
Lodging, restaurants, and camping are available at Grand Portage Lodge and Casino.
