Tri River Museums


Tri-River Historical Museum Network
Barry, Eaton, Ionia, Kent, Montcalm Counties -

If you’re in Barry, Eaton, Ionia, Kent or Montcalm counties of west central Michigan, pause in your travels and seek out one or more museums of the Tri-River Historical Museum Network.  Thirty three member museums and historical societies with proximity along the Grand, Flat and Thornapple Rivers have joined together to support one another and share ideas and programs.


These picturesque small town or rural museums are housed in a variety of buildings that in their heyday were schools, churches, meeting halls, homes, businesses or even railroad depots. Their displays vary greatly, but all have the goal of depicting their unique community heritage for all to enjoy.
