Our mission is to educate and inspire people of all ages, nurture the memories of the men and women from Michigan who served in the armed forces during America’s foreign wars, and to support current members of our nation's military. We also honor the peacetime bravery of Michigan’s space pioneers and astronauts.

Michigan's Own includes exhibits on Michigan's governors who have served in the armed forces, the Polar Bear veterans (members of the American North Russia Expeditionary Force who fought on Russian soil during WW I), veterans of WWI, WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, Gulf War of 1991, and the War on Terrorism. There are special exhibits to those who earned the Congressional Medal of Honor and the Distinguished Service Cross. Michigan's Own is the home of the largest collection of Medals of Honor in the world. We also feature exhibits on Michigan's astronauts. With our custom trip planner, Frankenmuth attractions like Michigan Heroes Museum can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Absolutely amazing. So much history and the guys there can school ya on everything. Just ask they are GREAT. My family WILL be back again. Thanks for a great afternoon. See ya soon.
  • This is definitely a great place to visit and see all the exhibits honoring our vets. Much to see. I recently donated ( in his name ) a large collage picture about Pearl Harbor that belonged to my late husband. I know this is what he would have wanted. He was very impressed with this place. I only took one picture because this man was from a city I grew up in.
