Coming to the Lakes »

For 10,000 years people have been coming to Muskegon County to work, play and raise their families. Listen to stories of families who settled or immigrated here, and learn why they call this area home. See a life-sized mastodon, visit a fur trader’s cabin, see tools used during the lumbering era, and learn about the area’s earliest industries. Visitors can also see real mastodon bones discovered in nearby Rothbury displayed in the Michigan Through the Depths of Time Gallery.
