Welcome To Hamburg Historical Museum

hamburg_historical_museumPreserving and Presenting The History Of Hamburg

Opened in 2004, the goal of the Hamburg Historical Museum is to preserve and present the history of Hamburg, Michigan.

The Museum is located in one of Hamburg's major historic buildings. The building began in the mid-1850s as a Methodist Church, housed the Hamburg Township offices in the mid-1900's and was the home of the Hamburg Township Library for over 20 years.

Take a walk into Hamburg history at the Hamburg Township Historical Museum.

Enjoy our wonderful displays of vintage toys, dolls and children's books.

  • Raise The Roof Sign


    The two year roof account has collected approximately 20% of the needed total, so the task now seems much less daunting. Each of you can help us reach our goal in some way.

    Contributions for any pocketbook in our "Buy a Board Campaign." To honor your gift there will be a board for you to sign and it will be placed on display in the museum.  More



    You can donate to the Hamburg Museum each time you use your Kroger Plus Card! But first, you have to sign up through Kroger to do so! View Printable Details.

    • Come Help Plant a Pioneer Garden! All gardeners and garden lovers pay heed! The museum has an opportunity to plan and plant a Pioneer Garden. The garden could grow the same kinds of produce the early settlers planted: Squash, Potatoes, Pumpkins, etc. I will donate the land, the non-GMO heritage seeds, and compost, so the garden could be placed behind the picket fence next to the museum parking lot. -- Phyllis Lindblade
