Some areas were closed so the tour was much shorter. Would like to go back when they are all open.

Our family field trip here was great. Parking was easy and signing up for the membership was quick. It's a great place to learn about Detroit's past. There's a nice gift shop that sells all things Detroit and we received free chocolates and a book filled with pictures of art. Masks are required and available if needed.

The Detroit Historical Museum is a gem! Step back in time on the streets of old Detroit, or track through the decades of city history. Find out the impact of Detroit specific people, places and things upon the world. Rotating exhibits combined with a stellar structure of culture and industry create a fantastic experience. The discount is a great way to save money and support a local gem.

My kids love the soda/car building game on top. Wish it had more hands on games in lower levels and wish the body drop was working

About Detroit Historical Museum

On November 19, 1928, the Detroit Historical Society opened the Detroit Historical Museum in a one-room suite on the 23rd floor of the Barlum Tower, earning it the nickname of the highest museum in the world. These days, Detroit’s Cultural Center accommodates the museum in an 80,000-square-foot space, where interactive exhibits preserve more than 300 years of city history. Frontiers to Factories traces Detroit's transformation from French-frontier outpost to industrial city, while America's Motor City celebrates its automotive dominance with a changing display of classic vehicles and a 1903 Model T that guests can sit in. Streets of Old Detroit brings the 19th century to life with recreated cobblestone streets that wind past stores of the era such as a five-and-dime, a soda shop, and a barbershop for powdered wigs.

Thanks to recent renovations, the society has expanded its chronicle of Detroit with three new permanent exhibitions. Detroit: The Arsenal of Democracy covers the ways the city's industrial infrastructure adapted to demands of World War II, and The Gallery of Innovation includes videos about renowned innovators and hands-on activities involving trial and error. As The Allesee Gallery of Culture examines the city's cultural history, its Kid Rock Music Lab lets visitors create and share their own music using interactive displays. Outside, the Detroit Legends Plaza honors the city's sports, entertainment, and media legends with cemented handprints and signatures from stars such as Lily Tomlin and Martha Reeves.
