Voted the “#1 Thing to Do” in Muskegon on TripAdvisor!

The Historic Sites division of the Lakeshore Museum Center is made up of five historic structures. Ticket prices include a one-hour guided tour of the Hackley House, Hume House, and City Barn, as well as self-guided tours of the Fire Barn Museum, and the Scolnik House of the Depression Era. They are open for the season from May – October, with special programs and tours available November-April.

The Hackley and Hume Historic Site

This site includes the Queen Anne style Victorian homes of Muskegon Lumber Barons Charles Hackley and Thomas Hume. The Hackley House, interpreted to 1890, shows what life was like for one of Muskegon’s most well-known citizens. The Hume House, interpreted to 1920, shows the life of a wealthy family after the lumbering era. The City Barn combines exhibit space and a gift shop.

The Scolnik House of the Depression Era

This light touch house museum depicts a single family home that was been divided into two apartments during the Great Depression. From bed rolls to a party line telephone,  visitors are immersed in the 1930s. Just a half block from the Hackley & Hume Site.

The Fire Barn Museum

Located next door to the Scolnik House of the Depression Era, the Fire Barn showcases firefighting equipment from the 1880s through the present day.  The structure, a replica built in 1976, is modeled after the Hackley Hose Company #2, an early fire station funded by Charles Hackley. The second floor hosts a vignette showing the sleeping quarters of the original fire fighters of Hackley Hose Company #2.
