the Dorothy molter museum is the best attraction in ely. if you don't know who Dorothy is, you are in for a real treat.

You can't beat the root beer and it's a quintesential BWCA experience!! The museum gives you a true look into what it looks like to TRULY live in the wilderness and the woman who did it!
