"Where the history of snowmobiling comes to life."

Why Donate?
The Top of the Lake Snowmobile Museum along with our partners, provide a unique hands on experience that is educational, healthy and fun.  Our museum, fundraisers and events provide one-of-a-kind activities along with a rich view of the past, through the collection of Antique and Vintage Snowmobiles and Memorabilia.  People of all ages are welcome to come and visit our museum, join us for our events and explore our wonderful town of Naubinway, Michigan.

The Museum Board is continuing to work on funding to sustain our new building which is located on the north side of US 2 in Naubinway. We now have a new page, New Building Project, where you can read about the progress of the new museum.

Our budget is led by our admission fees to the museum, along with other revenue generated by our activities which include the Naubinway Snowmobile Swap Meet, the Antique & Vintage Snowmobile Ride and Show, the Mackinac Bridge Crossing, donations from activities, and memberships. 

To continue growing, expanding and reaching our goals, we depend on the help from people like you.  Whether its a yearly membership, visiting the museum, taking part in a fun activity, or making a donation - online or in person we appreciate all the help and hard work that can be given to our cause. The Museum does have the 501c3, which makes all donations tax deductible.  Click here for our Fundraiser Form.

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. A complete list of grant awards around the state is available by contacting MCACA at (517) 241-4011, or by visiting the MCACA website at
