"To get the full value of joy, you must have someone to divide it with."

- Mark Twain


Museums are community storytellers. We inform the community about the past while looking ahead to the future.

Michilimackinac Historical Society is a place where stories come to life. Through intriguing artifacts and one-of-a-kind exhibits, we engage thousands of visitors each year in the rich, multi-faceted history of this region.  We believe that these exhibits should be open to everyone, so we do not charge admission to any of our venues.

If these treasures disappear into the mists of time, they cannot be recreated or replaced.  They are simply gone, and with them goes our knowledge of the past.  Your gift helps us preserve and share those treasures with visitors of all ages. Thank you for your gift!
