Established in 1980 as Michigan’s
Military & Space Heroes Museum, Stan
Bozich opened it in the basement of
the School Haus Square building on
Frankenmuth’s Main Street. Then, in
1985, Stan and a delegation from the

of land on Weiss Street.
With financial support from local
businesses, families, and veterans
groups, a building was erected; and in
1987 the museum’s collection moved
into its permanent home. The building
has been expanded to enable more of
the museum’s collection to be displayed
for the thousands of visitors it welcomes
