Three Oaks museum

Museum Board member Nick Bogert checks an item at the Region of Three Oaks Museum, which opens for the season on Friday.

THREE OAKS — An “amazing” local machine ahead of its time, a fearsome weapon faced by Michigan soldiers during the first World War, and locally made musical oddities for the home are among the exhibits making their debut at the Region of Three Oaks Museum this Fourth of July weekend.

The Region of Three Oaks Museum will begin its 2020 season on Friday, starting at noon. Regular weekend hours will be noon to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday. Social distancing rules are posted and masks, gloves and hand sanitizer are available at the front desk.
