This place is awesome!! As the reviewers said below you get a lot of value going to this place, the admission is low but the experience is way up there.

The old building is neat to see inside and out offering a lot of history throughout the building. All of the displays are done professionally and really offer an opportunity to the visitor to learn something in a fun way.

When we were there they had a large HO scale train layout in the basement that was really nice to see. The person running the train was willing to share some ideas of what it takes to build up something like this display.

Take the kids or just you and your other as I did. I think it is well worth the trip!

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.

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.

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.

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?
