What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Local history exhibits & educational programming for children, adults, seniors and disabled.

The Tri-Cities Historical Museum, is located at 200 Washington Ave. in downtown Grand Haven, and features three floors of experiences that help visitors orient the past with the present. A combination of permanent and ever-changing temporary exhibits acquaint our visitors with the Tri-Cities’ place in local history as well as in a broader world context. The exhibits tell the story – and special events, classes, and tours make the story heard! The Akeley first floor is a chronological history of Northwest Ottawa County, with immersive exhibits on a range of local topics such as: Native American cultural contributions, the fur trade era, early settlers and agriculture, industry, early tourism and commerce, and Victorian daily life. The Mezzanine floor features two gallery spaces for temporary exhibits. Past exhibits have showcased a broad array of topics– from Asian, African, and Middle Eastern art to the beginnings of surfing on Lake Michigan. Upstairs, an authentically recreated soda fountain highlights what was once one of Grand Haven’s largest manufacturers. Nearby, is a 1920s doctor’s office and display of early medical tools from the Civil War period to the early 20th century. The largest space on this floor is used for major temporary exhibits, which change annually.
