  • About Us


    The Michigan History Center fosters curiosity, enjoyment and inspiration rooted in Michigan's stories. Although our name is fairly new, our story goes back more than 100 years. 


  • Statement on Racial and Social Justice


    We have not done enough. In the wake of the police violence against George Floyd and those killed before him, the Michigan History Center renews its commitment to racial and social justice by seeking out and sharing the stories of the past that can help us all understand the impact of systems that create and condone police brutality and other forms of racial oppression. We need to do more to contribute to the work that dismantles those systems.
