Holidays at the Detroit Historical Museum

Family fun doesn't cost a thing! Get free admission for the holidays at the Detroit Historical Museum for one week: Dec. 26-31, 2011.

Is your cash flow tapped out from the holidays? No worries – you can still take the kids to the Detroit Historical Museum! This local landmark offers families free admission during Holidays at the Detroit Historical Museum Dec. 26-31, 2011. Sponsored by Masco Corporation Foundation, this annual event gives families the chance to check out what the museum has to offer without putting a strain on their wallets.

The museum, which is typically closed on Monday and Tuesday, will be open from 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday, Dec. 26 until Saturday, Dec. 31. Whether you're visiting for the first time or returning to the museum, there are many exhibits for you and your family to see – including classics like the Streets of Old Detroit, Motor City and Frontiers to Factories.

Stop by the Detroit Toys Stories exhibit, which displays classic, western-themed and military toys – and much more. Plus, check out the wall of TVs – playing classic toy commercials from the late '50s all the way till the early '70s.

The Volt is the electric car of today, but back in 1914, it was all about the Anderson Electric Car. They sold for $2,600 – which was pricey compared to the $600 Ford Model T. Get a chance to see this ride in person.

See the Metro Parent listing for more about the 2011 Holidays at the Detroit Historical Museum event.
