“A lot for $1”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

If you want to entertain your children or grandchildren on the cheap the cost will surprise you $1 for adults and $.50 for children and for that you get a visual history lesson of Saginaw with many hands on exhibits. take in the railroad museum downstairs. takes 1 to 2 hours.

“Must Visit in Saginaw”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

If you want to know the history of Saginaw, Michigan then the "Castle" is where to go. The museum is located in the "Old Post Office" and throughout your self guided tour you will find interesting exhibits of Saginaw's glory years. Admission is very low, I recommend adding a donation to help support this great museum.

“Interesting Architecture”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

We drove to the Castle Museum and although we did not enter, we drove around the entire building admiring the architecture. It is a beautiful stone building that appears taken care of, with it's spires and turret areas. On one side we saw a sign saying it was a museum, another sign said it was a post office, another was something like a community center area and another a church. It is downtown but in a pretty quiet area where it would be easy to park. I enjoy architecture and this made for some pretty photo opportunities.

“History of Saginaw.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Very interesting history exhibits of the better days of the Saginaw area. Too bad the good times are gone for this part of Michigan, like the rest of our country! What has happened to US?

“Awesome Building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Even if your not into architectual buildings you can't help but love the Castle Museum. It is a former U.S. post office (build with our $$) that was converted into a museum. Besides the building the museum is also very nicely laid out and well done with very nice displays. It is a must see in this area.
