Admission to the Tri-Cities Historical Museum is free, however, we greatly appreciate donations!


The Tri-Cities Historical Museum relies on the generosity of area taxpayers, who provide about 75% of our operating funds through millage assessments. These funds allows us to be able to offer free admission our residents and visitors. We make up the remainder of our funding through grants, investments, memberships, and donations. If you visited the Museum and enjoyed what you saw, please consider a donation. Any amount helps to support our mission and to continue to offer a quality experience. 


Street parking is available on both sides of Washington Ave or in designated City of Grand Haven parking lots. The nearest parking lot is located in the south lot directly behind the museum on the corner of South Second Street and Franklin Ave.  


The Tri-Cities Historical Museum provides an accessible environment for all visitors. 

Accessible parking spots are available in the City of Grand Haven parking lot located behind the Museum. 

The front doors of the Museum have ADA-compliant automated door openers, and the Museum has an elevator for accessing all floors. 

Public restrooms are available on the mezzanine floor of the building. Both public restrooms have a baby changing station and an accessible stall. 

Food and drink are prohibited in the Museum.
