Description

The Lakeshore Museum Center has four sites in Muskegon and one site in Whitehall. The Natural and Cultural history of the area is explored at the Main Museum Site with exhibits featuring a life-sized mastodon, animal habitats, and hands-on galleries. At the nearby Hackley & Hume Historic Site, the homes of Muskegon's most well-known lumber barons are available for tours. The Victorian Era homes feature intricate wood carvings, stained glass windows, and period furnishings. At the Fire Barn Museum a half block away, historic fire fighting equipment is displayed. The story of life during the Great Depression is told next door at the Scolnik House of the Depression Era. Michigan's Heritage Park is located in Whitehall, just 20 minutes north of Muskegon. The living history park explores 10,000 years of Michigan history in a natural woodland setting. Walk along a paved half-mile trail for interactive experiences at a Native American Wigwam Village, Fur Trader's Post, 1900s Farmhouse, and more. The Main Museum is open year round and the other four locations from May through October. For hours and more information, visit the Museum website www.lakeshoremuseum.org
