Travel back in time through the Plymouth community's example of the American Experience. Learn how the growth of American industry, the advent of the railroad and the invention of the automobile changed America's small towns, especially Plymouth, Michigan. The Plymouth Historical Museum features a late 19th-century Victorian recreation of Main Street, tracing the growth of the small town from the railroad depot to the general store. The largest Lincoln collection in the state of Michigan is housed in a separate room off of Main Street. And a Timeline of Plymouth is the newest permanent exhibit, featuring displays on the Daisy Air Rifle, Ford Village Industries, the Alter Motor Car, World War II, communication history, and much more.

Be sure to spend some time visiting this museum. Exhibits change throughout the year. Inside the museum, many vignettes are created to tell a story. Mannequins are dressed in vintage clothing. The shops that line the "street" have beautiful exhibits with excellent signage. You will...More

The Plymouth Historical Museum was very informative and entertaining. They change exhibits regularly and their docent William was VERY helpful and informative about all things Abe Lincoln. In fact, just go there and visit William. You will learn a lot!

You can't beat free. A cool little museum. The Lincoln exhibit was worth seeing, and the Plymouth Timeline was another highlight.

An excellent example of a small local historical museum. The Plymouth Timeline in the basement has tons of artifacts from the 1800s to 1950s. Almost too much - it borders on overcrowded, but everything is view-able. Also several "seek and record" activities for the younger...More
