There were several rooms depicting the history of Frankenmuth. Very interesting and nicely done. We enjoyed touring through this museum. Only negative was that lighting on a few of the signs was dim and made them difficult to read.

Having been to Frankenmuth about 15 times we decided to visit the museum. Was only $2 a person. Took about 15 min. Gave us a new understanding of the town and how it came to be.

This wasn't a large museum, but it was well done and we really benefited from our time there. Learned a great deal about the town and its history and would highly recommend it. Especially for the low admission fee!!

Had to pay admission, but would have been good to know about the admission in advance. We'll definitely plan for a future tour of the museum.

I thought it was very interesting. A great little museum for a small town. $2.00 tickets were very reasonable
