The Streets of Old Detroit really sounds magical. I always enjoy this kind of interactive museum exhibit. Thanks for another Midwest tip I knew nothing about!

Dominique

Fly Girl-The Detroit Historical Museum is in the city's Midtown cultural center, along with the main branch of Detroit's library, the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Charles Wright Museum of African American History and the main campus of Wayne State University--just to name a few places within a few blocks of each other in the area. Lots of stuff to see there!
The Streets of Old Detroit were magical when I was a kid, and they still feel magical to me :)

I loved going there as a kid, and I loved going there as an adult. One of the true gems of Detroit.

It always took me back in time, and fired a little girl's imagination.

Dominique

Sue-Thanks for stopping by!

The kids going through the streets the day we were there seemed to really enjoy that part of the museum, as well as the exhibit re-creating the auto assembly line.
I never tire of visiting the museum after all of these years, either.

I was born in 1930 and vaguely recall that there were huge street lamps and wonder if anyone else remembers them.

Dominique

Richard-Sorry, I don't remember huge street lamps in Detroit...a little before my time :)
Have you been to this display? It does reflect a few of the changes throughout the years in Detroit--most notably with the street surfaces (it replicates the cobblestones and log sections of the early 1800s, with the surfaces getting smoother and more modern as the exhibit moves through the years).
