Hello Shana Mc Cracken, this is Max Anders again I looked up all the places and none seem to be in Michigan. Do you know of any in the Michigan area. I know she would like to drop in and see her collection from time to time and with her age she can’t travel much. Thanks again

Midwest Miniatures Museum - National Miniatures Trust Museum

Hickory Corners, Michigan

midwestminiaturesmuseum.com

https://www.michigan.org/property/national-miniatures-trust-museum

This gem of a museum is located in a picturesque white farmhouse smack in the middle between Detroit and Chicago. Though it only opened in 2006, it boasts works from hundreds of miniature artisans. Standout exhibits include a toymakers room, a Noah's Ark Gallery, and a whimsical tree abode.

If she requires the exhibit of her collection be nearby, she may wish to contact her local town officials in housing her collection -perhaps at a library or university campus. She can start a trust foundation for this. BTW, the Ronald McDonald Houses are located in Grand Rapids, Detroit and Ann Arbor - all in Michigan. However, if she donates, she has no say-so in how her doll houses are used.

If she wants them on display in one place, she'll need to start a trust foundation and set it up. She'll need an attorney and CPA who specialize in such matters.

Thank you for the Michigan suggestion. I will pass it along to her. I am sure she will be glad for one closer to her so she can still see them when she wants. Max Anders.
