This used to be the Old Castle Post Office. It was converted years ago to a beautiful museum with wonderful exhibits from the past and a timeline through history of the Saginaw Valley area. Don't miss this place.

Saginaw historical museum has good displays always. The Lego display was great when it was there.. In the basement is a great model train display. There are several wars represented in the military displays. Room after room of history.

Really cool building with tremendous architectural detail inside and out. I could skip the grown-up train set in the basement and some other kitchy additions, but the original building has been well preserved and is just gorgeous.
