about Detroit Historical Museum:
Walk through cobblestone streets and shops from the 1840s, 1870s, and 1900s in the Streets of Old Detroit. Located in the lower level of the museum, the attraction gives a true glimpse of what it was like to live in Detroit years back.
Younger children flock to the Glancy Trains, a toy train exhibit where kids can operate crossing gates and blow whistles - and a camera mounted on the train gives them a neat view in the overhead "choo choo" cam.
The museum's New to the Collection exhibit features a variety of recently collected artifacts - including an array of items mined from Tiger Stadium.
The museum welcomes school groups and periodically offers teacher workshops.
On weekends, parking is complimentary with museum admission; on weekdays it's $3. Metered parking is also available in the immediate area.
Annual family membership is $65.
