The Imlay City museum is owned and operated by the Imlay City Historical Commission, which collects, preserves, and interprets the heritage of the Imlay City area and instills an appreciation of local history through exhibits and educational programs.
It is located in the historic Grand Trunk Railroad depot at 77 Main Street in Imlay City. The museum is open April through December on Saturdays from 1 to 4 p.m. and staffed by volunteers.
The museum is divided into thematic sections that transport you to different segments of the area’s history. Whether it is doctor office equipment, memorabilia or vignettes of bed chambers or a sample parlor filled with period furniture, visitors have plenty to peruse. Other sections are devoted to everything from music ephemera, to kitchen goods to radios, and personal grooming items.
