Voices of Muskegon »

The Voices of Muskegon Gallery is home to some of the museum’s oldest artifacts tracing the early history of the area. Two local artists built a series of dioramas in the 1930s and nine of them are displayed in this gallery. The three-dimensional, mini models depict such scenes as an early fur trading post, Muskegon’s first post office and school, and a Native American wigwam village.

Eight videos provide a history of Muskegon from the lumbering era of the 1800s to the present, plus a three-part series which examines the extensive restoration work at the Hackley and Hume Site. The videos range in length from ten to over twenty minutes with comfortable seating provided.
