At a cost of 5.00/family or 2.00 pp, this also gives you entrance to 2nd museum. Well layed out and informative with seasonal exhibitions. Fun activities for kids. Gift shop on site. Self guided tours with the push of a button.

Very well laid out and interesting artifacts about the history of Frankenmuth. Inexpensive-$2 gains you entry to this and the Brewery museum along the river. It doesn't take long to go through it so it won't eat up a large portion of your day (about 45 min - 1 hr., depending on how much you read).

If you want to know how Frankenmuth got started this is very informative! It only cost 2.00. It doesn't take very long to go though and if you go though this museum you get to go though the brewery museum for free!
