Mount Clemens Michigan Museums

After years of planning, the Discovery Center at the Mount Clemens Michigan Museum of Natural History in Macomb County is scheduled to open this spring. The volunteers who organized the $1.5 million renovation and expansion of the museum in the former Children's Museum made some changes this summer. Formerly known as the Macomb Children's Hands-on Museum, the Discovery Center, formerly the Childrens' Hands-On Museum, is expected to open in April, potentially giving the county town its first museum of its kind. It will be located in a 3,000 square foot building on the second floor of a former building at the corner of East Main Street and West Grand River Avenue.

Inside the museum there are a variety of exhibits such as animals, plants, birds, animals and plants from all over the world. The museum also has an interactive exhibition that members can browse, as well as a children's section with interactive exhibits and interactive displays.

He studied at Clemson University, where he earned a bachelor's degree in history, and at Denison University, where he earned a master's degree in history. Welsh said he is a member of the board of trustees of the Mount Clemens Michigan Museum, which is aimed at students, faculty, staff and the general public in the history department at Michigan State University.

He would also like to expand the educational offerings to include the Mount Clemens Michigan Museum and other museums in the area. The depot museum itself is a replica of the same depot where the young Thomas Edison saved a station employee and a small child from certain death in 1862. It was in this depot that he rescued them and taught young Tom telegraphy as a reward. Rides are also a way to encourage people to visit the museum and its many exhibits, such as the Edison Museum of American Railroads and the Museum of Electric Railways.

The depot has now been restored to its 1900s appearance and inside there are exhibits from the railway era. The Discovery Center will open this spring in downtown Mount Clements and the center offers a variety of activities for children ages 5 to 10, including instructional guided programs and interactive exhibitions.

Passengers are invited to have their photo taken in the cab and to view the locomotive. Karl Joost, a volunteer at the museum since 1985, said it was up to about a dozen volunteers to keep the train and its museum running. Clinton Township Parks and Recreation has been working with us for many years to create a wonderful Christmas train program that takes place over the Christmas holidays.

The Caboose, whose identity is most closely linked to its service number 96, has a long and varied history in which various owners have done their best to preserve it. As we noted in the thumbsplints of the last month, you should look at the history of the Mount Clemens Michigan Museum and its railroad, fear not, this important project will be forgotten for the near future. But if you want to have a look at the cab and look at the locomotive in its original condition, you should do so.
