free at the DHM

just got back from the newly renovated Detroit Historical Museum… not too shabby…but it’s prolly best to say, not as shabby… as in, not as shabby as it was before… it’s basically been updated and it’s nice because things work when you press the button for them and stuff that needed fixing before got fixed… there was a decent crowd this afternoon and i hope that a lot of people come out to see it… it’s worth the visit…

my favorite part about the museum is right when you walk in, there’s an exhibit about Detroit’s “Fab Five”, referring Detroit’s top 5 musical recording artists (Eminem, Aretha Franklin, Derrick May, Bob Seger and Stevie Wonder)… it’s prolly my favorite part because it’s the most current… i was hoping that they would reactivate the Assembly Line exhibit, but they didn’t… and i was hoping that they’d do more with the Old Streets of Detroit, but they just cleaned it up and i think it was a little less interactive…

out of the three museums in Midtown, the DHM is prolly my least favorite… the DIA is just awesome (even as it’s under it’s own renovations) and the Museum of African-American History is pretty impressive… still, the DHM is worth seeing, especially if you haven’t been yet… also, remember that admission is free all this weekend , along with the fact that they’re giving out free Coneys, Better Made Chips, Sander’s Hot Fudge Sundaes and Faygo pop from 5 p.m. – 9 p.m all this weekend….
