Mods - Let me know if this stuff shouldn't be posted. I am on a lot of distributions for different organizations, event planners, etc.

I think that the MAAH is an underappreciated gem in SE Michigan and would like people to know what is going on there.

I have to say that this museum was AMAZING

I was so impressed if you have not gone it is breath taking. The models of the era's are so good. Your on top of a boat and there is wind blowing from the ceiling and wave sounds then your in a reconstructed 1800's village it is so cool!
