Detroit Historical Museum is reopening on Friday

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) -- The Detroit Historical Museum will reopen to the public on Friday after six months' worth of renovations.

Located not far from the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Detroit Public Library, the museum now features expanded exhibits and technology upgrades.  

The half-year project marked the museum's first major refurbishment since the 1960s.

Additions include the Kid Rock Music Lab and the Legends Plaza.

The interactive music lab exhibit allows guests to feel what it's like to be on stage with artists such as Kid Rock. They also can mix their own music and test their Detroit music knowledge.

The new outdoor Legends Plaza features handprints from a number of Detroit's biggest names, including Barry Sanders, Al Kaline and Elmore Leonard.
