    The Archives of Michigan is located inside the Michigan Library and Historical Center at: 

    702 W. Kalamazoo St.
    Lansing, MI 48915

    Although Governor Whitmer's Executive Order 2020-110 (COVID-19) allowed libraries and museums to re-open on June 8, 2020, the Archives of Michigan remains closed to the public until further notice. The archives will re-open once we can ensure the safety of visitors and staff. We continue to provide reference services by phone and email. Learn about our new video conference reference services. Visit the DNR COVID-19 information page for updates.
