The Michigan History Center includes the Archives of Michigan and the Michigan History Museum, the flagship of our 12-site Michigan History Museum System. Located in downtown Lansing, the museum features more than 25 galleries of permanent exhibits, special exhibits and a three-story-high topographical map of the state.

The Michigan History Center fosters curiosity, enjoyment and inspiration rooted in Michigan's stories. We constantly seek new ways to provide opportunities for experiences that spark curiosity. We are as enthusiastic about the as-yet-untold stories of Michigan as we are about tales of Father Marquette of 19th-century lumberjacks. We are committed to providing opportunities for all people to see themselves as they experience our exhibits, our collections and our programs.

  • Doing some genealogy research. Staff spent over an hour assisting us. Very helpful and friendly.
  • A great place for a field our third grade class after learning about our great state of a Michigan all year.
  • Such a wonderful and unique experience! It's been a couple years but I cannot wait to come back!
  • Visited the museum on a field trip. The staff were helpful. The museum had a lot of great history.
  • I'm a total history buff and this free tour (only on certain days) is very educational and exhilarating.
