Give a piece of Michigan history with a gift from Michiganology

'Tis the season for finding that perfect gift for the Michigan lovers in your life!

Our puzzles, prints, mugs, and apparel are family-favorites for anyone who is curious about Michigan, past and present.

And it's all for a good cause! The proceeds from all purchases this season will help the Michigan History Center develop digital education resources and virtual programs that foster curiosity, enjoyment and inspiration rooted in Michigan's stories.
