The Muskegon Heritage Museum, located in downtown Muskegon, Michigan, is dedicated to preserving the economic, industrial & social history of the greater Muskegon area. Our collection includes informational exhibits, artifacts and photos pertaining to Muskegon’s industries, historic homes and businesses. We have a working steam engine with a line shaft that runs 11 machine tools. We also have a working Brunswick pinsetter, a spring winding machine, and over 80 other companies represented in exhibits. Don’t let the modest storefront fool you, the Museum has nearly 10,000 square feet of display space, spanning three floors!

Group & School Tours
Muskegon Heritage Museum offers exciting opportunities for groups to learn about the history of Muskegon’s industries and historic homes. We welcome school and group tours and can accommodate both during the regular museum open hours as well as anytime during the year.
Although the museum is self-guided, tours with a museum docent should be scheduled in advance. Group tours, for both adults and children will include demonstrations as well as special details about the museum exhibits. Student tours include demonstrations and hands on activities planned in collaboration with the classroom teacher.
