Description: Open 7 Days a Week | 10:00am - 5:00pm Michigan's Military & Space Heroes...
Open 7 Days a Week | 10:00am - 5:00pm Michigan's Military & Space Heroes Museum is dedicated to Honoring, Respecting, and Remembering the memories of people from Michigan who heeded the call to military service during America's seven foreign wars. Located in Frankenmuth, the museum was started in order to tell the stories of servicemen and women from around the state and it now contains nearly 700 full collections of personal artifacts and stories of our war time heroes. In fact, Michigan's Military & Space Heroes Museum has gathered so many stories that it is the largest museum of its kind throughout the country and still growing. The museum houses a gallery dedicated to Michigan's governors who have served and galleries that honor the servicemen and women from each of the following conflicts: World War One, World War Two, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Gulf War and our current War on Terror. Within the World War One room, visitors will find the stories of Michigan's Own Polar Bears. These displays honor the men who formed a regiment of 5500 men, 90% of whom were from Michigan. These men have the distinction of being the only Americans ever to fight Russians on Russian soil. The museum also houses displays for each of the 13 astronauts from Michigan as well as recipients of the nations second highest award for valor, the Cross. The final gallery at the museum is dedicated to Medal of Honor recipients from Michigan and contains the largest collection anywhere in the United States, of Medals of Honor. Visitors to Michigan's Military & Space Heroes Museum can expect to be overwhelmed by the stories of sacrifice, bravery and valor that they will find there as the museum strives to Honor, Respect and Remember those who have served in our nations military.

It doesn't look like a lot from the outside, off a ways from the main strip of Frankenmuth. But I enjoyed it for $7; it's kind of a state Hall of Fame for military and space travel but also a museum for war paraphernalia and decor. I actually loved all the model planes and ships around the place, I could... More

This has got to be the best little military museum in all of Michigan. We were amazed at how much first class information and well laid out exhibits they have managed to squeeze into such a small space. Excellent well informed staff can give you all you need to know about the displays. Well worth the visit and time.

Nicely laid out. Good information to read and our guide (it was quiet, so he had time to talk to us) was full of stories that made the visit very enjoyable. I was surprised at how much was inside this museum. Very informative and very enjoyable! Definitely worth visiting. There is also a small store.
