Smaller museum that highlights our Michigan heroes. Much to see here. They have laid out the exhibits in a proper manner.

Absolutely fantastic hidden Michigan gem! This museum has an amazing collection of military history, Michigan soldiers' stories, and artifacts and memorabilia. For me it's an absolutely essential stop on a Frankenmuth visit, and well worth a trip on its own merit! The staff are incredibly helpful and knowledgeable and the museum itself is well organized and well cared for. A fantastic place for researching a school project, brushing up on military history, or just spending a day learning more about the amazing things people from Michigan have accomplished.
An absolute Hidden Gem. Everyone who is a resident of Michigan should visit here. Antonio who was a volunteer was excited to tell me and my son about the heroes who served our country and made the experience very memorable. We were not there as long as we wanted because we had a tight schedule but this is seriously a place to read the stories about the different people with ties to Michigan that have served our great country.
