    The Heritage Center (visitor center) is open seven days a week during the summer including federal holidays.

    At the information desk, park rangers, volunteers, Grand Portage interns, teen rangers and bookstore attendents will welcome you and answer questions you have about the area.

    In the visitor center you can view our feature film, "Rendezvous With History: A Grand Portage Story" on a wide screen in high definition and surround sound (23 minutes).  The feature film is shown on the hour during summer months.

    Four short subjects (24 minutes) are also available on the wide screen: "Our Home: The Grand Portage Ojibwe," "The Men of the North West Company," "The Gift of the Birch Bark Canoe," and "A Gap in the Hills: Geography of Grand Portage."

    Their are two exhibit galleries: On the first floor are exhibits and displays concentrating on the Grand Portage Ojibwe, archaeology and the North West Company of the North American fur trade.  On the second floor are an archaeology exhibit entitled Shield Archaic Technologies and murals depicting lifeways of the Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior Chippewa (Ojibwe).
