  • You enter the past and wander through various times and places in the area, listening and viewing many aspects of local and international history. Very nice!  more »
  • We noticed it as we were seeing what was on that street, but as it was getting late we came back the next day. When I say little museum, I do mean little. It doesn’t take long to go through. It’s info...  more »
  • Enjoyed the historical story told by the museum displays, however got a little bored by the predictable presentation style. It's a small museum though, and well worth the visit if you want to understa...  more »

  • It's not a large museum, but it's quite interesting, spanning the history of Frankenmuth from its founding in the 1800s to today. It also includes a number of hands-on exhibits that are especially good for kids (but are interesting no matter what age you are!). The price is also extremely reasonable (which makes sense given its small size): $2 for adults, $1 for children and students. The final room of the museum holds special exhibits that are usually advertised outside, and the gift shop has a wide selection of interesting gifts too, many of which are local or at least from Michigan. It's a short tour for a low cost, and is a fun way to spend a bit of time while you're walking around Frankenmuth. I've visited a few times and enjoy it every time! Parking is located behind the museum.
  • Nice museum. My family visited during the reformation exhibit. The exhibits were laid out well and there are hands on components for kids that kept mine occupied.
  • It's neat place with a small museum it's a little janky but it's full of awesome information on the history of the town worth the 2 dollars if you like history!
  • Place is very cool you get two places for the price of one and it's a good deal for two dollars
  • A fun time at a small little museum on local history. They have a great but of info on the area, as well as some fun exhibits for the wee ones. Highly recommended stop for anyone with interest on the town.
