Honoring Michigan’s female trailblazers.

The stories of women’s contributions to Michigan’s history inspire the women and girls of today and tomorrow.

To honor these pioneers, MWF assumed responsibility of the Michigan Women’s Historical Center and Hall of Fame in 2018. We now commonly refer to the museum as the HERstory Gallery, which is located downtown Lansing at 105 W Allegan Street (below Grand Traverse Pie) – 1 block in front of the Capitol! We are honored to have the privilege of telling the stories of Michigan women’s brilliance, talent, perseverance and achievement.

The HERstory Gallery is REOPENING on Women’s Equality Day, August 26, 2021 after being closed due to a flood in January.

Join us to celebrate the resiliency of this long-standing institution and the women it honors!

The HERstory Gallery is available as a meeting and event space for groups of up to 40 people. We have a great gift shop with lots of fun, feminist finds. Consider doing your holiday shopping here! We also have several eye-catching and informative traveling exhibits available for rent that would be a great addition to your local museum, school, or business.
