Museum shop

It was a nice little shop but the museum was really small. Otherwise a nice place for children, not adults.

We stopped into the Frankenmuth Historical Museum because our kids wanted to check out the gift shop. Our kids wanted to do the tour and for $5 for the whole family it was a great deal. We were pleasantly surprised at how well put together this exhibit was put together! The kids loved that it was interactive and I enjoyed... More

This was a last minute purchase. We went in and browsed the little gift shop and then paid our way into the museum. It was super cheap, $2 for adults. It was more than I expected for a little museum in a gift shop. You could tell the creators loved this place and their were many neat facts and items.... More

This is very worthwhile and it's cheap to get in. Frankenmuth has a very interesting history and you will learn all about it here. There are a lot of hands on for the kids too.

3 floors of Artifacts...amazing displays. Admission only 2.00 which gets you into both museums on the main street. Ron, the curator, was very friendly and informative. Museum is old flour mill which still displays all machinery. First floor is history with antique artifacts. Impressive second floor of over 2500 beer glasses, not to mention the collection of cans on the... More

Been to Frankenmuth many times, but on this very quiet day we discovered this museum for the first time. Inexpensive at $2 per adult, kids are $1. There are displays with figures and narratives. Explains the German and Bavarian heritage of the area. A large group of children came through, so we let them "pass" and then continued through the... More

It is a small museum. They have a coupon for a free ticket with purchase of another and students get in for $1. Its cheap and worth going to. They have history of the area as well as some interesting artifacts.
