The Wilderness was just named the #1 new upscale course in the US by Golf Digest Magazine. The Legend and Quarry are both in the top 100 courses in the US!

International Wolf Center

International Wolf CenterA museum dedicated to wolves with fascinating exhibits including several taxidermy mounts displaying different postures with descriptions of what they mean and how wolves communicate.  The highlight of the museum is it's own wolf pack, living in captivity, which can be seen in the large windowed viewing area.  Feeding times are scheduled and can be watched... great way to see how the wolves interact and pack behaviors.

Dorthy Molter Museum

Dorthy Molter MuseumThe last person to live in the Boundary Waters, Dorothy Molter's Isle of Pines was a favorite stop for many canoeists over the years and "the" place to get a bottle of her home brewed rootbeer. Dorothy's cabins were removed from the Isle of Pines on Knife Lake after her death and transported to Ely where a museum has been established in her honor. Stop by for a very informative tour and get your own bottle of her "kwitcherbeliakin" rootbeer.

North American Bear Center

North American Bear CenterObserve live bears in a forested enclosure. Discover the meanings of black bear vocalizations and body language. The North American Bear Center offers hands-on activities, a children's area, theater, gift shop, and more. Group rates available. Located just one mile south of Ely on Hwy 169, The North American Bear Center is a great place to learn more about bears while you're visiting "bear country." For more information, visit its site at www.bear.org.
