Dear Friends,  

2022 Thanksgiving Parade Viewing Event Cancelled

Sad but true.

There will be no America's Thanksgiving Day Parade viewing event at the Detroit Historical Museum this year.    We just don’t have the staffing to host you.

Society Member: Colleen

Livonia resident Colleen Badgero may be one of our newest members, but the city of Detroit has always held a special place in her heart. “I’ve worked as a yoga instructor in Detroit for the past year and a half,” she says. “I love spending time in Detroit. I believe understanding true history is of utmost importance, now more than ever.”

From the CEO: October 2022

Dear Friends,  

Call for 1997 Red Wings Artifacts

We want Stanley! In early November, the Detroit Historical Museum will launch an exhibition to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the 1997 Detroit Red Wings bringing the Stanley Cup back to Detroit after a 42-year drought. In order to capture as much of that thrilling time as possible we’d love to see your Red Wings memories from the 1996-97 Stanley Cup season!
