Honolulu House Museum - Built in 1860 as a private residence for Judge Abner Pratt upon his return from the Sandwich (Hawaiian) Islands where he served as U.S. Consul. It is listed on the Historical American Buildings Survey and the National Register of Historic Places.

American Museum of Magic - This one-of-a-kind museum contains a half-million pieces of memorabilia (including Houdini’s escape apparatus).

Capitol Hill School - See what school was like in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s in this two-room schoolhouse. Governor’s Mansion - Built in 1839 in anticipation that Marshall would be the state capital.

Grand Army of the Republic Hall - Includes artifacts from the Civil War, Spanish-American War, WWI, WWII and more.

Marshall Postal Museum - The second largest postal museum in the country houses an 1890’s post office, a horse drawn mail buggy, a 1931 Ford Model A mail truck and more.

Walters Gasoline Museum -. The museum features photos of the Marshall Interurban Railroad that ran through downtown Marshall and a map showing all of the routes once used by interurbans in Michigan, and much more.

Governor's Mansion - This mansion was built in anticipation that Marshall would become the State Capital of Michigan. Today all that is left of the dream is an area known as Capitol Hill and the speculative Governor's Mansion.
