Destination of the Week: Frankenmuth Area, MI-Michigan's Own Military & Space Museum

Destination of the Week: Frankenmuth Area, MI-Michigan's Own Military & Space Museum

What a difference a word could make.  While touring a store I glanced at a charity poster with a more accurate name for this museum: Michigan's Own Military & Space HEROES Museum.  Some, just based on the original name, may expect a slightly worn and dated science museum.  Instead, a visitor has the opportunity to read about individual Michigan residents who have served in the military.   Each veteran’s display includes photos, personal belongings, and a narrative on the serviceperson’s achievements.  Who needs blockbuster films when you can visit this hall for real life superheroes.

Note: Depending on source the museum appears to have taken the hint and modified its name to include ‘Hero’, even though most web sites still refer to the museum by its original name.
