Field Trips: Visiting Split Rock
Teachers and students find that Split Rock offers opportunities for teaching and learning --- about lighthouses, navigation, iron mining, commerce, Minnesota's North Shore and Lake Superior.
All age groups can be accommodated.
Field Trip Activities
Start in the Visitor Center, where students are introduced to the history of the lighthouse and the North Shore. Students see the short (22-minute) film and spend time in the interactive exhibits.
Take a guided tour of the historic site, which includes the lighthouse, fog signal building, oil house and keeper's restored home.
After the tour, a stop in the Museum Store offers tangible take-home memories.
Groups typically spend 1.5 - 2 hours on site.
Split Rock Lighthouse State Park
Picnic lunches in the adjacent Split Rock Lighthouse State Park are popular and provide access to the lakeshore and Park beaches.
