Exhibitions in the 78,000 square foot facility show the history of
southeastern Michigan, and include the favorite and newly renovated Streets
of Old Detroit, recreating Detroit street scenes from the 1840s, 1870s and
early 1900s. In December 1995, the Museum opened the Motor City Exhibition,
celebrating 100 years of automotive history in Detroit. The 8,000 square
foot exhibition features an actual working body drop taken from the General
Motors Cadillac Clark Avenue facility. Additional permanent exhibits include
Frontiers to Factories, which takes a look at Detroiters at work from 1701
to 1901, and The Glancy Trains, an interactive display of model trains that
is a long-time Detroit tradition. Other Museum galleries feature changing
exhibits for all ages.
