First Fridays at the Museum
The first Friday of each month we offer special programming from 6-9 pm for museum visitors of all ages, and each month's activities are centered on a different theme. Some of our themes are pop culture oriented, several of them include the opportunity to dress up (or down), many of them include local history, and all of them are free, fun, and open to the public--so come downtown on First Fridays to explore your museum! For the most current information on upcoming First Fridays, please visit us on Facebook.2020 First Friday Themes

Senior Outreach Programs
We are pleased to offer mobile history programming to the seniors in our community. Currently we visit 18 different senior centers, nursing facilities, and assisted living homes around Monroe County up to 4 times each per year to share local history with many folks who do not have the ability to come to the Museum. Any facility or organization that serves seniors and would like a free program is encouraged to call the Programs Department at (734) 240-7786 to schedule one today.
Scouting Programs are available at the Museum for all program levels and ages. If you don't see a program below that suits your needs, we can create one to meet your requirements. Please call at least 2 weeks prior to your preferred date to schedule your field trip or program.
