DETROIT (WWJ) – For the fourth consecutive year, the Detroit Historical Society is offering a special thank you to the community by offering free admission at the Detroit Historical Museum Dec. 26 through Dec. 31.

During the promotion, the museum will also offer extended hours from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. The museum will however be closed for the holidays on Dec. 24, Dec. 25 and New Year’s Day.

Visitors to the Detroit Historical Museum experience exhibits that chronicle more than 300 years of the region’s history like our longtime favorite, the famous Streets of Old Detroit. Take pride in the city that put the world on wheels in our Motor City exhibit, and let the kids explore the interactive holiday world of The Glancy Trains.

In addition, check out the Museum’s newest exhibits like Detroit Toy Stories, a 1914 Anderson Detroit Electric Car and a new display featuring the work of inventor William Bushnell Stout.

The latest installment in the Fabulous 5 exhibit series showcases “Detroit’s Destinations,” including Belle Isle, Campus Martius Park, Eastern Market, Franklin Cider Mill, and The Heidelberg Project. These historic places have attracted metro Detroiters and tourists for years.

The Detroit Historical Museum is located at 5401 Woodward Ave. (NW corner of Kirby) in Detroit’s Cultural Center area. Parking in the Museum’s lot is $4 at all times.  For more information, visit
