I was the only one in the place, so i took my time, husband napped outside on porch. Personally didn't care for last room or two of exhibit ..something about great women in history, I just breezed...

My friend and I went in just to check it out. The museum is very cheap and offers student discounts (possibly military also, but I'm not sure). It is small but there is a LOT of information in that little place. You can listen, read, and touch/play with the information and things throughout the museum. It is really neat and... More

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!

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
