Lansing is centrally located and within 90 minutes of 90% of the state’s population, so Lansing is not only a great place to explore on its own.

The accordion-pleated steel and glass of the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum is a contemporary art museum.
The displays regularly rotate, so every visit offers something new. The Broad shows a variety of art forms, including video, film, and live performances.
The Michigan Historical Center also has a museum dedicated to Michigan’s history.
While you’re at the archives, be sure to check out the museum where you can’t have a Michigan historical museum without an exhibit about cars.
