Small town, BIG culture: Museums & Galleries

Where fresh meets family, the Mt. Pleasant area is the intersection of every walk and stage of life. Experience artistry in every form – from canvas and sculptures at a local gallery to learn more about American Indian culture, the Mt. Pleasant area thrives on art and culture.

Experience the Midwest’s premier American Indian museum, the Ziibiwing Cultural Center. The center provides education on the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe and other Great Lakes Anishinabek tribes, and a diverse collection of sacred and ceremonial items. 

Visit the Museum of Cultural and Natural History at Central Michigan University for temporary and permanent exhibits, provided by the university and students enrolled in CMU’s Museum Studies. We recommend the Kozmic Clash: Peace, Love, and Outer Space and “Feel the Music” in the hands-on gallery.

Walk through displays of artistry and brilliance at a local gallery. See more than 150 Michigan artists’ work at Art Reach of Mid Michigan, explore prints, jewelry and more at Main Frame Gallery, and witness up and coming artists at Central Michigan University’s various exhibitions at the University Art Gallery and Clarke Historical Library
