"Where the history of snowmobiling comes to life"


The accessibility plan for the Top of the Lake Snowmobile Museum is to provide conformance with all applicable ADA requirements as well as convenient access to the museum’s physical and electronic site.

Maintaining ADA accessibility is a high priority. The museum’s facility has ADA accessibility throughout (entrance, display floor, rest rooms, meeting rooms, library and store room) and will continue to maintain those conditions.

The museum is located adjacent to a major highway (US-2) and also adjacent to Michigan Department of Natural Resources Snowmobile Trail No. 2, which provides ease of access for the motoring public and snowmobile travelers.

Museum hours are 9:00 to 5:00, 7 days per week throughout the year (closed Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas). Website, Facebook page, emails and phone messages are answered within 24 hours.

The museum has a large parking lot including store front parking. There is 70 feet of store front parking with a 100’ x 170’ parking area in the rear of the building. The large parking area provides ample space for large vehicles such as semis, motor homes and combination truck / trailer vehicles.

The museum has a website, Facebook page, WiFi, video conferencing system and newsletters (2 / year), which provide access to the museum, its gift shop, an inquiry / question / answer service to provide general information about the museum and its activities.

On Sept 20, 2019, The Top of the Lake Snowmobile Museum was awarded a grant of $12,500 for Operational Support from the State of Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA) and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA – ART WORKS). The grant was awarded through the MCACA peer review process and was one of 561 applications to compete for MCACA fiscal year 2019 funding. The grant requires a 1:1 match and helped the museum leverage the $12,500 of support from its annual income and the many donations from supporters. In particular the museum has received grants from the Graymont Community Economic Development Fund and the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians. It has also received significant donations from the Antique Snowmobile Club of America, The Midwest Vintage Snowmobile Shows, Inc., many snowmobile clubs, several recreational and snowmobile shows, the museum’s internal $1,000.00 Challenge, and many museum members. The grant funds will be applied to museum operating costs. Applicable costs include internal operations, marketing, travel to shows within the State of Michigan and cost of employees. The MCACA peer review process allows for each grant applicant to be competitively considered by a panel of in-state and out-of-state arts and culture professionals. This ensures the taxpayers, who support this project through legislative appropriations, and all other visitors or residents in Michigan will have access to the highest quality arts and cultural experiences.
