Overview

Travel back in time through the Plymouth community's example of the American Experience. Learn how the growth of American industry, the advent of the railroad and the invention of the automobile changed America's small towns, especially Plymouth, Michigan. The Plymouth Historical Museum features a late 19th-century Victorian recreation of Main Street, tracing the growth of the small town from the railroad depot to the general store. The largest Lincoln collection in the state of Michigan is housed in a separate room off of Main Street. And a Timeline of Plymouth is the newest permanent exhibit, featuring displays on the Daisy Air Rifle, Ford Village Industries, the Alter Motor Car, World War II, communication history, and much more.

The Plymouth Historical Museum was purpose built in the 1970’s. Ironically, the town fathers demolished three historic houses to build it, but that seems to be the Plymouth way. Nonetheless, the museum is a gem with super energized docents who seem happy to be there...More

The museum is filled with so much Plymouth history. I learn something new, with each visit. In addition, the museum will host special events throughout the year. I think they do a great job preserving our town's past!

Was doing research on air guns. Plymouth was the home of Daisy Air Guns so visited this museum. It is very well done with nice displays, a knowledgeable staff and well done displays. Well worth visiting to gain knowledge of Plymouth local history.

The museum is not terribly large, but it is very complete in presenting a picture of Plymouth's history. I did some research in the archives, and the staff were incredibly helpful.
