Knowlton's Ice Museum of North America

Tucked away on Grand River in Port Huron is a museum that chronicles the history of ice use in North America. Knowlton's Ice Museum contains over 3000 pieces of memorabilia about this huge industry of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Here you will see how it was harvested, cut, stored and sold and then delivered to your door via horse and buggy. Their collection of antique ice boxes, tools and other related items are perhaps the most extensive in the US. With regular hours only in the summer, in the winter you can call ahead and they will open for groups.
