  • A great museum to visit when traveling to Detroit. The entry fee was $10 for adults and $8 for active military and students. The streets of old Detroit was my absolute favorite part of this visit. It was amazing walking through the streets. I enjoyed the fashion and music part. There was also a modern part that had newer artworks. Overall, a great place to visit.
  • Well I spent 3.5 hours in there. It's a cute museum with really interesting historical readings and short films 🎥 I'm hopeful, with our continued donations and visits, they will add to the historical artifacts. The basement floor, "streets of Detroit" is very interesting and cute. You must check it out. Donate and enjoy👍
