Great way to spend 30-45 minutes in Frankenmuth. They had some interesting hands-on exhibits, good history on the German missionary and settlement, and at the end a special exhibit. At the moment, this exhibit is Bread Baker to Bread Maker: The Changing Role of Women! $2 to get in and a nice little gift shop with local goods at the... More

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.

Not a very large museum but well worth the visit to understand the history behind Frankenmuth. It is interactive with a volume of facts about Frankenmuth and Bronner family history. There is small fee to visit the museum but reasonable. Probably need an hour or so to listen to audios and to do some interactive tasks as you learn about... More

Great little museum. Many interesting artifacts. Nice audio presentations, not too long. Plenty to read if you want to get in depth facts. 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
