The Detroit Historical Museum in midtown Detroit resumes a paid admission policy Fridayt for the first time in seven years.
The fee is a way to help offset budget deficits, The Detroit News reports.
Executive director and CEO Elana Rugh says the Woodward Avenue attraction in Midtown lost $297,000 in 2018. Its annual operating budget is currently about $4.5 million.
Here's what it'll cost to see exhibits:
- $10 for adults
- $8 for seniors, students, active military and first responders with ID
- $6 for children age 6 and older
- $35 for a household (up to six adults and children with the same address)
- Admission remains free for children under 6 and Detroit Historical Society members
