DHM to Re-open Sept. 29

over the summer, the Detroit Historical Museum has undergone $800,000 worth of renovations, all which occurred under the transfer of operational responsibility to the Detroit Historical Society…

i went to the DHM last year with my wife and it was an interesting experience… it was cool to see all the stuff about the city and the region that they had… the “Streets of Detroit” exhibit is the best part, IMO… but at the same time, the museum in general wasn’t kept up very well and in that respect it was a little embarassing and somewhat indicative of how things have gone around here over the years… but now the DHM has been renovated and perhaps that’s a little more indicative of how things are changing around here??? let’s hope so…

check out the DHM’s site for specifics about renovations or read this article in the News for more info as well…

    Let me tell you, I know first hand about the renovations going on at the DHM. In fact, I’m very familiar with the work they were doing at 5am every morning for about a week and a half.

    It just so happens that my window faces out over the DHM parking lot and about two weeks ago (during the cool open-window weather) there were some dudes hammering stuff into the signposts in the parking lot. ALL MORNING LONG.

    The “Streets of Detroit” exhibit was my favourite part. I love a similar exhibit at the African American History Museum. There is something charming about recreations but something really freaky about moving people in the recreations.

    the moving fake people in the recreations are definitely freaky…
