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

This place is a hidden treasure! John was amazing and will spend time talking you to if you ask. He seemed to know all the stories of the service men and women in detail and is a great storyteller. He said they have about 900 displays/sorties they rotate through. It was definitely an emotional visit reading about all these amazing service people that made the ultimate sacrifice and those that were able to return to their loved ones. definitely a place you can return to over and over
It is a great museum that taught us more about war heroes from Michigan. The gentleman who was our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. We all also enjoyed the tank and airplane out front and the scavenger hunt for our younger child. It helped keep interest throughout all the exhibits, which we visited multiple times.
