DETROIT — The Detroit Historical Society offers a word seldom heard at holiday time: free.
The society said it's offering free admission to the Detroit Historical Museum starting Sunday through Jan. 2. The only exception is Saturday, when the museum is closed for New Year's Day.
Officials at the Woodward Avenue facility say it's the third consecutive year for the week-long promotion — and it's a way of thanking those who have supported the museum for nearly 90 years.
The museum will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
Some of the newest exhibits include Streets of Detroit, the Motor City and the interactive Glancy Trains — originally the collection of real estate financier Alfred R. Glancy Jr.
