Visiting Keweenaw National Historical Park is different from visiting many other national park sites across the country. The park was established to preserve and interpret the history of copper mining on the Keweenaw Peninsula through partnerships. The National Park Service works with a variety of organizations, including public and private entities, to achieve this goal.

Most visitor services for Keweenaw National Historical Park, such as guided tours or museums, are provided by the park's partners known as Keweenaw Heritage Sites. These sites are not owned or operated by the National Park Service but park staff work with these sites to coordinate services and preservation efforts. For more information on the Keweenaw Heritage Sites, including hours of operation and fees, request a copy of the annual park newspaper or view it online here.

Keweenaw National Historical Park operates the Calumet Visitor Center in downtown Calumet, MI. This visitor center is open seasonally, for the most current operating hours please visit our operating hours and seasons page. Here you can experience three floors of interactive exhibits, films, and ranger talks. Please call ahead to confirm hours of operation, 906-337-3168.
