Inspite of being a very small museum, what makes it interesting is they have a lot of Hands-On activity stuff. At the entrance, they have a kind-of-game that gives a clear reason on why people migrated. It was a nice and simple way to explain the history of the city. they have the wooden furniture and the tools people used... More

We stumbled upon it as we made our way down Main Street. It is a typical town museum with static displays and collections of the town's past. Kids were bored, but I found some things interesting.

We took the tour and loved it! Everything we saw, touched, and heard was amazing and very interesting. A great... More

We love history and this was our first stop in Frankenmuth after checking into our hotel. $2 for adults and $1 for students. She even let my college age daughter in for $1. Can't beat the price to learn about the history of Frankenmuth! Very interactive and hands-on! Took about 30-45 min to go through and kept us entertained. Would... More

For only $2, this is arguably the best deal in town for an attraction. That is if you like to know how this town came to be. It's not a long drawn out production but a concise interesting exhibition which covers the history of Frankenmuth, Michigan and it's founders. I think it took me about 45 minutes to get through...

it was very interesting, a little dark inside so it was hard to see a lot of the information but it was worth the 2 dollar admission charge

Not for families, it wasn't very exciting really just a front for another gift store. I didn't enjoy it
