The Michigan Military Technical and Historical Society preserves?for current and future generations?the efforts, artifacts, and stories of the Greatest Generation. Established in 2011, the museum sheds light on the role Michigan played in the 20th Century conflict, showcasing the state's civilian and military personnel. Though it has exhibits of vehicles, camp sites, and bunkers, the museum offers much more than just various displays. Visits become interactive thanks to monthly roundtable discussions, frequent lectures, and even WWII re-enactments packed with enough intensity to re-create war scenes or the deadliest of water balloon fights. Museum guests can step back for a second, too, and enjoy movie nights or stop into the gift shop for Michigan- and WWII-themed goods.

Falcon Flight Center's pilots take passengers up in the skies for breathtaking views of Ann Arbor and sites such as Michigan Stadium or to teach aspiring pilots how to operate a plane.
