The Tri-Cities Historical Museum is well worth the visit. There are excellent exhibits showing early history of this area in Michigan. The museum frequently changes its exhibits and offers differing events throughout the year. Entrance is free.

Our visit to the museum was a great stop on a chilly day. We decided to do some shopping and browsing. The museum was a great FREE thing to do to learn a little more about this beautiful town.
