Design a Museum Exhibit | Secrets Lives of Michigan Objects

Saturday, September 14, 2019
11:00 am - 3:00 pm

What stories do YOU think belong in a museum? Bring objects from home that tell your story and use our supplies to create your own museum exhibit. Be sure to photograph it while it’s on display in Secret Lives of Michigan Objects so you’ll always remember that time when your stuff was in a museum! Don’t want to bring your own objects? We’ll have some prop items available to fill out your exhibit.

Explore Secret Lives of Michigan Objects | Special Exhibit through hands-on weekend programming for the whole family! Each month’s program will highlight a different portion of our current special exhibit and inspire you to see objects – both unusual ones and everyday ones – in a new light.

Second Saturday activities are available from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. on the 2nd Saturday of each month and are included with the cost of admission. Activities are generally suitable for ages 5 – adult, though some activities may require parental supervision or assistance.

Learn more about hours and admission at We’ll provide all the supplies – just bring your family and your enthusiasm for Michigan history!
