Plymouth Historical Museum
Travel back in time through the Plymouth community's example of the American Experience. Learn how the growth of American industry, the advent of the railroad and the invention of the automobile changed America's small towns, especially Plymouth, Michigan.
The Plymouth Historical Museum features a late 19th-century Victorian recreation of Main Street, tracing the growth of the small town from the railroad depot to the general store. The largest Lincoln collection in the state of Michigan is housed in a separate room off of Main Street. And a Timeline of Plymouth is the newest permanent exhibit, featuring displays on the Daisy Air Rifle, Ford Village Industries, the Alter Motor Car, World War II, communication history, and much more.
The Plymouth Historical Museum is owned by the Friends of the Plymouth Historical Museum. The Museum features 26,000 square feet of exhibits, a museum store, an extensive archives and research library, and a meeting room.
Our current special exhibit, Wheels of Summer
, runs from June 25 - November 2. Check out this short promotional video!
