Troy Historic Village

The Troy Historic Village is a collection of 11 buildings surrounding a gazebo and green in the heart of Troy, Michigan. Filled with the collections and stories of the 1800s settlement and 1900s growth in the Troy area, staff and volunteers use these buildings to bring history to life for visitors of all ages. Our popular field trips might immerse students in an 1880s one room school or teach students that lighting a room wasn’t always as easy as flipping a switch. We offer programs, events, and activities for all ages. Cheddar our Village Mouse introduces preschoolers to the Village through story hour and exploration. Get more hands-on in the Blacksmith shop or at one of our workshops where students of all ages learn traditional trades.

Encompassing more than 850 acres, River Bends Park is rich in plant and animal life, and has historical significance as well. The park is divided into two sections by the Clinton River, which flows through the park in an area approximately six miles long. In 2000, a bridge was constructed to connect the two sections of River Bends Park.

Arctic Ring of Life – Polar Bear & Sea Otter

The Arctic Ring of Life is one of North America’s largest polar bear habitats. This state-of-the-art, interactive facility encompasses more than 4 acres of outdoor and indoor spaces. The most unique feature of the Arctic Ring of Life is the spectacular 70-foot-long Frederick and Barbara Erb Polar Passage, a clear tunnel that winds through a vast underwater marine environment. This 12-foot-wide, 8-foot-tall tunnel takes visitors underneath diving and swimming polar bears. Visitors then arrive in an “ice world”, passing through a frigid ice cave and finally entering the Exploration Station with additional indoor viewing. The Arctic Ring of Life was named the No. 2 Best Zoo Exhibit in the U.S. by the Intrepid Traveler’s guide to “America’s Best Zoos”.
