Welcome To
Hamburg Historical Museum

Preserving 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.
