The Dorothy Molter Museum preserves and interprets northwoods wilderness heritage through learning opportunities inspired by Dorothy Molter, the last non-indigenous resident of the BWCA.
The Dorothy Molter Museum is a dynamic and widely recognized educational organization. It is highly valued for its historical resources and educational impact. The museum inspires the next generation of northwoods stewards through Dorothy’s legacy. As we continue to remember Dorothy and keep her spirit alive, it is our hope that we all dedicate our lives to live as Dorothy did, in harmony with the environment, with great dignity, courage, helping humankind, and making a significant contribution toward a better world.

Our Web Site
Our current site was financed by a grant from the Minnesota Historical Society, a non-profit educational and cultural institution established in 1849, whose essence is to illuminate the past as a way to shed light on the future. The Society collects, preserves and tells the story of Minnesota’s past through museum exhibits, libraries and collections, historic sites, educational programs and book publishing.
We are deeply grateful for the funding that allowed us to redesign the site and create our own online store.
