Open 7 Days a Week | 10:00am - 5:00pm Michigan's Military & Space Heroes Museum is dedicated to Honoring, Respecting, and Remembering the memories of people from Michigan who heeded the call to military service during America's seven foreign wars. Located in Frankenmuth, the museum was started in order to tell the stories of servicemen and women from around the state and it now contains nearly 700 full collections of personal artifacts and stories of our war time heroes. In fact, Michigan's Military & Space Heroes Museum has gathered so many stories that it is the largest museum of its kind throughout the country and still growing. The museum houses a gallery dedicated to Michigan's governors who have served and galleries that honor the servicemen and women from each of the following conflicts: World War One, World War Two, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Gulf War and our current War on Terror. Within the World War One room, visitors will find the stories of Michigan's Own Polar Bears. These displays honor the men who formed a regiment of 5500 men, 90% of whom were from Michigan. These men have the distinction of being the only Americans ever to fight Russians on Russian soil. The museum also houses displays for each of the 13 astronauts from Michigan as well as recipients of the nations second highest award for valor, the Cross. The final gallery at the museum is dedicated to Medal of Honor recipients from Michigan and contains the largest collection anywhere in the United States, of Medals of Honor. Visitors to Michigan's Military & Space Heroes Museum can expect to be overwhelmed by the stories of sacrifice, bravery and valor that they will find there as the museum strives to Honor, Respect and Remember those who have served in our nations military.

A truly outstanding military museum! The exhibits are well displayed, and well described. My particular interest is medals, and the museum holds the largest public display of Medals of Honor in the US. It's a relatively small museum, but there's a lot to see, so...More
