Doin' It in Detroit: Detroit Historical Museum

 
The Detroit Historical Society, established in 1921, is the "umbrella" organization for The Detroit Historical Museum and The Dossin Great Lakes Museum. As the weather turns cooler, it's a great time for "Doin' It in Detroit" at the Detroit Historical Museum.

Located in the heart of the Detroit Cultural Center near Wayne State University, the Detroit Historical Museum is one of the oldest and largest metropolitan history museums. It was established in 1928. Over 300 years of Detroit history, including the very popular "Streets of Old Detroit" and "The Motor City", an authentic auto assembly line, are housed in over 8,000 square feet of exhibition space.


Current exhibitions include:



 

  • Hero or Villain? Metro Detroit's Legacy of Leadership


  • What makes a leader? Are there certain qualities or characteristics that define leadership? Are leaders a product of their time or would they have risen to such status regardless of when they lived? Moreover, why do some think of a particular leader as a “hero” and others as a “villain”?


  • 100 Years Ago


  • Did you ever wonder how large the City of Detroit was 100 years ago? Do you know what song made its debut a century ago and is still sung by millions of people each year?
