  • This is an excellent historical museum for anyone interested in local history. The staff is exceptionally helpful, thorough and knowledgeable. There is a lot going on in Bay City. We enjoyed our trip
  • Was great place for monthly business people get together. Did get a chance to see some of the historical displays though. Will have to got just to tour the museum.
  • This place is delightful and fascinating. Had no idea of the treasures housed here. Learned so much about the place my in-laws grew up in. Price is by donation. Gift shop worth the visit as well.
  • WOW BAY CITY has some dark history
  • Wonderful place for children and adults alike, tons of local history!
