Grand Portage National Monument is a United States National Monument located on the north shore of Lake Superior in northeastern Minnesota that preserves a vital center of fur trade activity and Anishinaabeg Ojibwe heritage.

Travel into the past to discover the present. Explore the history of Ojibwe people and the North West Company of the North American fur trade. Follow pathways into a distant time. Take in the sights and smells of a bustling depot reconstructed over its original footprint. Listen for the echo of the drum over Grand Portage Bay.

Over 120,000 artifacts have been uncovered at Grand Portage providing vital information to locate four reconstructions and a stockade on the original depot setting and furnish these structures.
