During the Festival of Trees, the Muskegon Museum of Art opens its doors for guests to frolic through a winter wonderland of themed trees and seasonal décor. Partygoers can grab an hors d'oeuvre and jam along with a live blues band, a dance-floor motivator even better than pistols rhythmically fired at dancers’ feet. In time for snow season, staffers deck the halls of the museum with holiday decorations and custom-designed spruces to lighten the mood. Revelers can snag potent nog from the cash bar and take sips while viewing the mechanical movements of a model train set, or track down your pet scone's long-lost relative in the gingerbread village. During the festivities, patrons can explore the museum's hallowed halls, which contain exhibits including celebrated paintings, sculptures, and cultural artifacts.

Tri-Cities Historical Museum occupies two appropriately historic buildings?the Grand Trunk Railroad Depot, originally built in 1870, and the Akeley Building, originally built in 1871. Today, these relics display artifacts from Spring Lake, Ferrysburg, and Grand Haven's pasts, documenting events all the way back to when the land belonged to Native Americans. They cover a diverse array of topics, too, from maritime exploration and medicine to decor, through rooms decorated with historically accurate furniture, art, and tablet computers.

As the sun dips below Coopersville Farm Museum and Event Center’s grain silo, local musicians gather in the high-ceilinged hall against the backdrop of patchwork quilts and antique farm tools. They sing gospel, country, and folk songs that have been passed down for generations. Events such as these are one facet of the museum’s mission to honor and uphold rural traditions. In addition to the monthly jam sessions, the 12,000-square-foot facility hosts quilting circles, line dancing, and other skill-swapping events. Curators spotlight the region’s agrarian past by recruiting antique-farming tools and folk art and freeing hopelessly lost scarecrows from corn mazes. In addition to shining a light on the region’s past, the museum strives to support current culture makers; The hall serves as a gallery space for local artists, and during the youth-led Kids’ Day local teens teach tykes creative skills.

At Engine House No. 5 Fire Museum, visitors learn about the history of the area's first responders, as they explore a collection of vintage fire-fighting gear, some of which dates back to the late 1600s. The Building: In 1880, this brick building was built and stood in downtown Grand Rapids for 100 years. When a new firestation was planned in 1980, it was disassembled, brick by brick, and reassembled in Allendale to house this history museum. Eye Catcher: A fleet of vintage fire engines, including a 1936 hand-pumped engine Permanent Mainstay: A collection of leather buckets, which were the only way to supply water to the fire engines until the early 1800s?some of these buckets were crafted in the late 17th century Crown Jewel: One fully-restored Eureka hose cart, complete with a 24-karat-gold inlay From the Press: According to Fox17, "These fire trucks are truly something that would be seen at the Henry Ford Museum in Greenfield Village in pristine condition."

The not-for-profit Forever Curious Children's Museum sprang from a simple philosophy: children learn best by doing. The museum?s labyrinthine series of exhibits embodies that philosophy with its myriad opportunities for interactive play, exploration, and experimentation. Casual visitors, birthday-party guests, and students on field trips can huddle inside the life-size wigwam and wooden canoe at the First People exhibit, which introduces young ones to America?s earliest inhabitants. Science exhibits encourage children to suit up in doctors? coats and study the human body or take a wheelchair for a spin to better empathize with disabled people. Learning begins at an early age, and the museum?s penned-in toddler area fascinates the youngest of minds with mini home furniture such an easy chair and a bed, beneath which lurks a disarmingly pintsize boogeyman.
