What a great place! With a coupon - it only cost us $2 per couple! This was informative and well presented. Excellent - we learned so much. Everybody that visits Frankenmuth should go here, seriously.

The Frankenmuth Historical Museum is a great place to visit. The entry fee is very reasonable. The museum shows how religious devotion was directly connected to the establishment of Frankenmuth. Life for the first 50-100 years revolved around the church and the schools established by the church, in part to bring Christianity to the native Americans. The museum shows what... More

Take thirty minutes to tour the small Frankenmuth Historical Museum ! The route is easy to follow, the audio segments are not too detailed and the German (according to my German cousin) is the true old stuff!

We could walk to the museum from our hotel, so that was fun. I liked the museum when they had exhibits who could inter act with. The price was good and the gift shop was nice too. It showed a lot about Frankenmuth and I was glad we choose to stop there.

I usually find these types of things boring, but my husband is into them and he really enjoyed it. I'll admit that I did take the time to read many of the displays. It doesn't take very long to get through, and is free if you also do the brewery tour (which we did).
