The Wyandotte Museum is dedicated to inspiring and fostering public awareness, interest, understanding and appreciation of the unique history of the city of Wyandotte and its relationship to the Downriver region. The Museum preserves our mutual heritage through its historic buildings, collections, archives, publications, exhibits, programs and special events using our shared past as a foundation of the future.
The Wyandotte Museum serves primarily to house the hallowed history of our city. The Campus offers tours of the Ford-MacNichol Home, houses archives, makes research materials available to the public, generates education outreach programming, and offers a year round myriad of special programs appealing to a wide audience range.
The Wyandotte Museum is open for tours from March to December. Tour hours are Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm (last tour begins at 4:30 pm). Group tours may be arranged by contacting Museum Staff. More information about tours may be found on the museum website.

At the Wyandotte Museum, there are a variety of volunteer opportunities to choose from; there’s something for everyone!
Those interested in a behind-the-scenes view of the museum may enjoy Collections Care, as they assist staff with the care and inventory of our archives and 3D collections. Volunteers in our Docent Program are outgoing people who lead tours of the museum and educate visitors on our unique heritage. Additionally, those who volunteer at our special events and programs engage the public through a range of fundraisers throughout the year. A more detailed list of volunteer opportunities follows below.
Volunteers can work both regular schedules and occasional hours. Contact Museum Staff and we can discuss your interests and our needs. I am excited to work with you to care for and promote the Wyandotte Museum!
