We chose to tour the museum with our young children while the rest of our group went to the winery. Boy was that an excellent choice!! $5 admission for a family of 4 is a great value nowadays, and the children actually enjoyed it! We "time-traveled" from the city founding up through modern days. There were a variety of interesting... More

Family enjoyed the stories and pictures of the olden days compared to today. It helps the children learn to put history in better perspective, yet not boring.

I am a history buff and always look forward to finding out the history of places we visit. Every small town has something to tell and Frankenmuth is no exception. From the earliest settlers to today's visitors the history changes and forms the wonderful feel of the Village. Make this a priority place to visit in Michigan. You can spend... More

I've been going to Frankenmuth my whole life, and I never went to this museum. I made a point to stop by on this trip, and I was glad I did! We got in free because we had already paid the $2 admission to the Lager Mill (down past Zehnder's), and the admission to the Historical Museum is included. You... More

This museum is very informative & you can learn so much about the town of Frankenmuth, MI. You can go through the museum at your own personal pace.

Easily accessed on main street. Not too big to get boring but quite educational. Well done for a small local museum. Easily walked through. $2.00 tickets and included another site down the road. Unusual for a touristy area but interesting and good for kids to learn.

This museum is located on the main street of Frankenmuth. The self-guided tour shows how the settlers lived back in the 1800's. At the end of the tour there is a display/history of the Detroit Tigers for all you baseball fans. A very nice gift shop is in the Museum.

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.
