Detroit Historical Museum

A beautiful (but also convenient) way to discover more about Motor City’s past. The Detroit Historical Museum was established in 1928. Apart from chronicling the history of Detroit, the museums also features an array of interesting collections, including a fur trading post from the 18th century, an auto assembly line, and the signature exhibit Streets of Old Detroit, which shows the city’s incredible transformation between the 1840s to the 1900s.
