The Lakeshore Museum Center houses our natural and cultural history exhibits. It is comprised of multiple sites and buildings including the Hackley & Hume Historic Site, the Fire Barn Museum, the Scolnik House of the Depression Era, the Muskegon Heritage Museum, the Archives, and our Museum Store.
The Lakeshore Museum Center is funded in part by a Muskegon County millage.
We want to say thank you to our community for its continued support!

SAVE THE GLASS ANNUAL APPEAL
Help us to fulfill our mission of preservation this year by supporting our efforts to restore three windows in the Hackley House in the most critical condition: one in the library, which sits over Charles Hackley’s original builtin desk, and two windows that ornament the family staircase. While many of the stained glass windows need care, due to harsh Michigan seasons, these windows in particular are in danger of bowing to the point of breakage. To assist in our restoration efforts simply fill out our online donation form and type in “annual appeal” in the comments section. We thank you for your continued support!
We provide immersive experiences that reveal Muskegon County’s identity, inviting guests to explore themselves and the world around them. Our history, science, and technology content is often developed in collaboration with community partners and is always delivered by knowledgeable and personable staff and volunteers.
