The Muskegon Heritage Museum is one of the wonderful museums that are located in downtown Muskegon. This museum is dedicated to showcasing the economic, industrial, and social history of Muskegon. The featured exhibit here is their 1893 Corliss Valve Steam Engine, with its 10 foot diameter flywheel weighing in at six tons! And the best part is that this is in working condition and you can come see it during museum open hours. You will also be able to look into the Heritage Machine Works where you will get to see how many of the industries in the 19th and early 20th century ran their machinery. The Corliss Valve steam engine actually runs eight different machines including an 1888 “Shepard” Lathe, an 1855 Engine Lathe, and a Sibley & Ware drill press. This really is something that the whole family could enjoy and you get to experience how all of these machines actually work and how they contributed to Muskegon society.
