Michigan Historical Museum
The Michigan Historical Museum surrounds visitors with Michigan history from prehistoric times through the late-twentieth century. Major exhibit environments include a three-story relief map of Michigan, walk-through Upper Peninsula copper mine, one-room schoolhouse, 1920s street scene, 1957 Detroit Auto Show, and a lakes and lands diorama complete with a rustic cabin and lighthouse. Explore all twenty-six permanent galleries, located on four levels. Don't miss the temporary exhibit gallery on the ground floor. The Museum Store offers unique items that have been carefully selected to reflect Michigan's rich heritage. The State Archives of Michigan and Library of Michigan are also located in the architecturally inspiring Michigan Library and Historical Center complex, located two-blocks west of the State Capitol.
