Really enjoyed our trip through this free museum. Particularly the Victorian home with four actual rooms that were furnished. Historical information was presented in very interesting ways.

The Tri-Cities Historical Museum is well worth the visit. There are excellent exhibits showing early history of this area in Michigan. The museum frequently changes its exhibits and offers differing events throughout the year. Entrance is free.
