Michigan Library and Historical Center
This fantastic museum on Kalamazoo St in Lansing surrounds you with Michigan history from the prehistoric times through 1975. You can walk through a copper mine, visit a S & H Green Stamp store, a lumber barron's mansion, a one room school house, a 1930's bungalow, a Motown sound machine and more. The three story relief map of Michigan is so cool! The Michigan Library was transferred last year to the MI Dept of Education. Now it is facing a severe budget cuts and may lose their vast collection of genealogy, the largest in the US.
