MHRC hosting open house

MARQUETTE – The Marquette Regional History Center is offering a weeklong holiday open house from Dec.7-12 during regular museum operating hours.

During the open house, visitors can catch a slide show by wildlife photographer Steve Lindberg. See wildlife photos from the Marquette area. Learn about the history of our trails and hear stories of Steve’s daily outings. Learn about the history of albino deer in Marquette.

“Steve has been interested in photography for a long time but only after retiring as a state representative did he pursue it,” organizers said in an announcement. “In 2013 he took his new camera and dog out for a walk and posted a picture on his Facebook page. That has remained his daily routine: getting outside, taking pictures of wildlife, and sharing a photo.”

Visitors can also see the Great Outdoors exhibit or enjoy a photo opportunity featuring a photo of an albino deer.

Donations are appreciated, organizers said.

The Marquette Regional History Center is remaining compliant with current pandemic requirements for museums and retail stores, organizers said.

Please wear a mask and social distance during your visit. Stay home if you do not feel well. Capacity restrictions are in place for all areas of the museum and gift store. The Longyear Research Library is open by appointment.
