Ojibwe Museum & Cultural Center
The George W. Brown Ojibwe Museum and Cultural Center is a non-profit institution owned and operated by the Lac du Flambeau Band of the Lake Superior Chippewa. In 1995 the band chose to distinguish an elder who has been a life long proponent of cultural preservation by naming the center in his honor. The purpose of the center is to preserve and promote the knowledge of local history and cultural through the collection of data and artifacts and through the development of exhibits and educational programs.

The audiences of the center are members of the Lac du Flambeau Band of Ojibwe  and other Native American people, non-Indians living on or around the Lac du Flambeau Indian Reservation, tourists and others who visit northern Wisconsin.

Collections of the Center find their roots in the cultural history of the Lac du Flambeau Ojibwe. Many of the objects available for exhibit at the center were made by Lac du Flambeau Ojibwe and other Ojibwe bands. Exhibits are structured around two general themes: 1) Ojibwe history and cultural, and 2) the fur trade period and the Ojibwe.

The museum and cultural center was opened in June of 1989. Since than, more then 200,000 visitors have come to take classes, learn from our exhibits, participate in cultural programming and to use our collections and archives for research.
