About the Ella Sharp Museum
The Ella Sharp Museum, founded in 1965, offers programs, exhibits, and experiences preserving community history, advancing art appreciation, and understanding, connecting children with science. Our 10-acre campus includes the Hadwin Center with exhibit galleries, program spaces, offices, and a museum store; the Merriman Sharp farmhouse, a one-room schoolhouse, a log cabin, barn, and other historic structures; and the Hurst Planetarium. Our mission focuses on providing opportunities to connect our community with history, the arts, and science. We received American Alliance of Museums accreditation in 1978 and have been reaccredited twice. One of the first small museums in the country to receive such distinction, the Ella Sharp Museum is one of only 38 accredited institutions in the state of Michigan.
