Hugh Glass Bear Battle Sculpture

The Grand River Museum that houses the statue has so much more to see: dinosaur bones found nearby, movie props from "The Revenant," and more. The lady who was running the museum the day we were there was full of all kinds of interesting facts. I'd go back!

[Barb Unruh, 10/15/2023]

The lady was likely Lisa Schmidt, one of the museum's co-founders.
