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.
