Sun, 19 May 2013 20:26:58 GMT — The Michigan Iron Industry Museum opened its doors to the public Sunday. It was for their annual open house. Visitors filled the auditorium to hear the band White Water perform. White Water has performed for almost every open house in the last 26 years. Others came in to see the exhibits. The museum displays a detailed history from the earliest days of Michigan's iron industry, along with many historical artifacts. The museum also has its own nature trails that offer a historical tour of the area. Lyle Perry and his wife came for the open house for the first time in 20 years. "Well, it's been a while. It looks real good. They've made some additions and some changes. People should really take a look at it. I'm happy to be here," said Perry, visiting from Marquette. The museum's next event is the annual Antique Auto Exhibit on Father's Day, June 16.
