The Grand Portage National Monument Heritage Center opened in August 2007 with a commitment to honor the area’s history, people and culture. The 16,600-square-foot building is located on a rocky hill overlooking the reconstructed fur-trading post. It features pine pillars that rise from the basement to the roofs pointing out the Four Cardinal Directions important in Ojibwe culture. The building houses exhibit galleries about Ojibwe culture and the fur trade, a bookstore, multi-media programs, park offices, archives and a classroom.

The Grand Portage Band of Minnesota Chippewa holds a traditional Pow Wow (Rendezvous Days Celebration Pow Wow) adjacent to the Grand Portage National Monument the same weekend as the Grand Portage Rendezvous Days.

In 1958, the Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior Chippewa donated part of its land inside its reservation to the National Park Service to establish the site of the Grand Portage National Monument. Tribal members hoped that the new park unit, complete with a visitor center and museum, would revitalize the reservation’s struggling economy and bring jobs to Grand Portage.
