The museum grounds are located at 701 West Lake Street, in the beautiful 'Chisholm Memorial Park', adjacent to the sports complex and the National Guard Armory.  Enter the grounds at the gate in front of the Armory and drive to the Castle (admissions.)

Parking is in front of the Castle; no need to walk up the drive! 

Approaching Chisholm from the west, exit US Hwy 169 onto MN Hwy 73 and follow Hwy 73 signs through the roundabout toward the water tower.  Proceed 0.6 miles to the water tower and turn left between the granite pillars.  Proceed west 1 block toward the National Guard Armory, turn left up the driveway to the parking area in front of the Castle.

Approaching Chisholm from the east, take the first exit toward Chisholm, and follow Cty Rd 67 to the 4-way stop sign.  Turn left, drive across the Bridge of Peace over Longyear Lake, and continue straight ahead 8 blocks between the granite pillars to the National Guard Armory, then turn left up the driveway to the parking area in front of the Castle.
