The Detroit Historical Museum in Downtown allows visitors the
chance to tour the scope of the city's history, from Antoine de la
Mothe Cadillac's landing on the banks of the Detroit River through
the city's emergence as an industrial capital. In the museum it is
possible to walk through the streets of Old Detroit and explore
19th-century shops. Visitors can also find out about Detroit's role
in the 'underground railroad' that helped slaves escape from the
South. The interactive Glancy Trains toy train exhibit delights
young and old.
