Troy Museum and Historic Village: One of the Best of Detroit

Have you ever visited the Troy Museum and Historic Village?

The Museum and Village contains 10 historic buildings, and a village green, and gives the public the chance to learn, explore, discover and enhance your understanding of the history of the City of Troy.

If you have visited the Museum, and think it is a worthwhile community place, please vote on the WDIV 4 Best of Contest. Last year, the Museum and Village was ranked the fourth best museum in the area, after The Henry Ford, the Detroit Institute of Arts, and the Museum of African-American History.

If you haven’t visited the Museum recently, this Summer is a good time to drop by. There are fun and interesting family-friendly activities going on every week. This week, for example, on August 13, there will be a hearthside cooking demonstration; live alpacas from Powder Puff Pacas, to show how wool is used; and story time under the story tree.

The Troy Museum and Historic Village, located on the northwest corner of Wattles and Livernois Roads, is a great place to spend a few minutes on your lunchtime, or a few hours with the family.
