Pastimes in Times Past

Even in the Great Lakes wilderness, the historic residents of Michilimackinac knew how to have a good time. As you explore Michilimackinac, stop and try your hand at games of skill and chance, sing a song, take tea with the neighbors, enjoy the latest news from London, or learn an 18th century dance.

All special events are included with a regular admission ticket to Colonial Michilimackinac. Tickets can be purchased here.
