Because it is located right on Main Street you can walk in before the kids realize they are in a museum! Displays well explained. Small enough for the elderly with difficulty walking to view and not be exhausted. Clean very helpful staff!

The museum displays information about the history of the town and the people who settled here. There's some information for adults and for children for them to interact with some of the exhibits. At the moment, they have a little section on president Kennedy.

The museum basically told the story of how the people of Frankenmuth came to settle and live there. I found it to be very interesting.

What a great little museum! We're self professed history nerds, and love talking with the director and staff. Always interesting new exhibits and the great local history!
