Members of the Great Lakes Plein Air Painters Association have been traveling the state capturing images of state parks in order to provide an artistic snapshot of the parks centennial year. You can view 100 works from this "Paint the Parks" initiative in our museum cafeteria - no admission fee required. Purchase a painting and 25 percent of the proceeds benefit historic interpretation in state parks.
The Michigan History Museum—flagship of the Michigan History Museum System—is located in the east wing of the Michigan Library and Historical Center. Sunday admission and weekend parking are free. Read more Michigan History Museum visitor information.
We invite you to explore our online calendar, where you'll find all Michigan History Center events throughout the state.
