A three-year grant will help the “Sharing Michigan’s Untold Stories” project meet its goal to increase the diversity of exhibit participants.
The effort seeks to refresh displays at the Michigan Historical Museum in Lansing.
The exhibit will give children the opportunity to explore history and to also use technology more effectively by allowing families, students and teachers a way to access the exhibits information online.

“Updating the exhibits in the museum is critical to its mission of telling the great stories of Michigan,” said Cindy Hales, executive director of the Michigan History Foundation. “Using the latest technology will ensure that the visitor experience is fresh and relevant.”
The museum will begin updating its current exhibits starting with the “First People, Territorial Capitol and Settlement “ and “Civil War” exhibits.
The museum plans on adding to the “Native American voices” and “Growing Up in Michigan” exhibits.
“ It will help us explore new ways of sharing all of Michigan’s stories, both inside and outside our walls,” Hales said.
