Detroit Historical Society

Things to do while you’re off between Holidays? I have a long list, even though I will be working and one of them is to visit the Detroit Historical Museum. Located at 5401 Woodward at Kirby, this is a delightful trip. I love their exibit, “Then and Now” on the second floor where they have a collection of 19th and 20th century photographs so you can see how the city has changed over the years.

The Historical Society offers a wide range of tours. Beginning in January you can tour some of the more famous buildings in Detroit. The Fox, Guardian, Fisher, the Gem and Renaissance Center. In March, there is a really cool tour called Historic Houses of Worship. This is your chance to visit St. Peter & St. Paul’s, the Jefferson Ave Prespytarian chuch and St. Joeseph’s Roman Catholic.

And one of my favorite sites is the Society’s web page. Not only does it describe it’s exibits at the museum, it has this neat time line thingy’ on the front page where you can click on a decade and find out what was happening in our town at that time. In addition it lists just about everything happening at the museum and within the Historical Society.

So if you’re looking for a fun afternoon for you and your friends or family, put the Detroit Historical Museum at the top of your list, k? Hope you enjoy a great Holiday Season.
