Snake River Fur Post

See how many cultures interacted and worked together as you explore the rugged daily life of the early Minnesota fur trade:

  • Meet a costumed French voyageur and a British fur trade clerk
  • Visit an Ojibwe encampment
  • Watch demonstrations of traditional skills
  • Take a guided tour
  • Explore interactive exhibits on the fur trade
