A great museum to visit when traveling to Detroit. The entry fee was $10 for adults and $8 for active military and students. The streets of old Detroit was my absolute favorite part of this visit. It was amazing walking through the streets. I enjoyed the fashion and music part. There was also a modern part that had newer artworks. Overall, a great place to visit.
Well I spent 3.5 hours in there. It's a cute museum with really interesting historical readings and short films 🎥 I'm hopeful, with our continued donations and visits, they will add to the historical artifacts. The basement floor, "streets of Detroit" is very interesting and cute. You must check it out. Donate and enjoy👍
I was honored to have my artwork in the Detroit Historical Museum art show as a member of the Detroit Fine Arts Breakfast Club. The show was upfor two months. I have been visiting the Detroit Historical Museum since the 1970s The recreation of early Detroit Street shops in the lower level is mesmerizing. A must stop if you are visiting Detroit.
Beautiful Museum. I love learning about history & this is a nice place to learn some things about Detroit history. I especially loved the artwork & the lower level. The decade's area was nice too.
Excellent place to visit for all ages! Displays are always changing and an excellent place to learn about the history of Detroit with lots of hands on experiences, Clancy trains, travel through time downstairs. A place we always go and never disappoints.
