  • The whole place was filled with things from the movie a few years ago. With little areas set up to look like the inside of Ralphie's house and historical facts, it was so cute to see! The museum overa...  more »

  • What a surprise. This town is lucky to have such a great museum. I've lived in this area most of my life and never realized that there was such a great museum here. I also noticed that this is a "stand alone" self sufficient museum, meaning that it is not funded by the City or anyone but donations and entry fees. If you can't pay the small $5 entry fee (as someone posted in a previous review) then you must not any appreciation for history and what this place does to keep its doors open. Well worth the small fee to get in a see what a great job these people have done to preserve the history of their town. Considering that Plymouth was once know as the Air Rifle Capital of the World, it was cool to see the Air Rifle display, The Ford Village Industries display and all the other really interesting items.
  • Plymouth actually has a fairly remarkable museum - the upper part is a mock-up of 'old plymouth', and the lower level is quite large and filled with fascinating collections. You can easily walk around this place for a couple hours.
  • Maybe this is a nice museum... But why charging $5 admission per person? It looks small for such a price.
  • Very cool little museum
  • Just happened to be at the museum for a craft show in December. A gentleman saw how surprised we were at the size of the "museum" part of the lower level and invited us in. We took the tour both downstairs and up and thought it was fabulous and we don't live in Plymouth. What a quiet gem sitting right in the middle of the city. A super place to take an...older (9 and up) child (younger kids won't be as impressed :) And adults will LOVE it! Reminds me of the Detroit Historical Museums...basement streets. -Those of you who have been there will know what I'm talking about. Good job Plymouth Historical Society!!
