Discovering, Preserving, Exhibiting the history of the Ishpeming area. Organized in 1999, the Society encourages annual memberships and welcome sponsored spending for special projects. The museum focuses on every day life, people, businesses and past times that showcase Ishpeming’s citizens. Discover legends of Ishpeming – John Voelker, Kelly Johnson, Glenn Seaborg; early City documents, schools, Anatomy of a Murder and Gossard artifacts, military uniforms, VASA and other organizations, Blue Notes, bands and music history, and much more. Ishpeming High School year books and other materials are available for research for a donation. We currently offer hours, 10-4 (EST) Mondays year around; and Thursdays, May – October. We make appointments for group tours, and individuals. During the months of November – April, we continue the process of entering all accessions into Past Perfect museum software, and make changes for seasonal displays. We welcome input, new members and volunteers at any time.
