The Mille Lacs Indian Museum site includes a modern building with exhibits which tell the story of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe Indians. The building's arching window wall reflects the shoreline of Lake Mille Lacs. Fashioned in cedar, the exterior is highlighted with a copper dome and an inset tile band designed by Mille Lacs elder Batiste Sam.

Adjacent to the museum, a restored trading post, once operated by Harry D. Ayer, retains its 1930s appearance.
