The Lakeshore Museum Center Opens for the 2016 Season

The Lakeshore Museum Center.  It's a lot more than just one location here in town!  You'll find plenty of destinations to visit, opportunities to learn and places that hold the heritage and treasures from over the years right here in Muskegon.

Some are big and bold and right in the middle of town and some, are off the beaten path and considered a hidden gem!

The Hackley and Hume Homes are part of the Museum, as is the Scolnick House and the Fire Barn Museum. Michigan's Heritage Park makes the list too as do the numerous permanent exhibits in the museum building and some of the exhibits that come and go are right there in the Lakeshore Museum Center located 430 W. Clay.  It's well worth a visit and important to show kids today that life wasn't always ipods, on demand and Snap Chats.

You can learn so much by a quick glance to the past.  Take a longer look and you can learn even more.  Muskegon is an ever evolving community and has gone from lumber, to manufacturing to an emerging location for tourism and destination travel.  It's not an overnight process, but it's moving in the right direction and an eye to the past is equally important as the future.  Be proud of where we've been and where we're going.

The 2016 season of the Lakeshore Museum Center is about to get underway and Joni Dorsett invited me down to the Hume Home to talk about this season and everything coming up during it.  Have a listen to the chat below.

It's a rich heritage we have here in Muskegon.  Make sure that you take the time to visit, or, maybe revisit some of the truly remarkable places we have and make sure too, your kids get a first hand look at Muskegon through the eyes of people who are passionate and devoted to believing our past is as much a part of our future.  We are very fortunate to have such people, preserving such places right here in Muskegon Michigan!
