DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Historical Museum is set to reopen to the public after six months' worth of renovations.

The museum located near the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Detroit Public Library will feature expanded exhibits and technology upgrades when it reopens Friday.

The half-year project marked the museum's first major refurbishment since the 1960s.

Additions include the Kid Rock Music Lab and the Legends Plaza.

The interactive music lab exhibit allows guests to feel what it's like to be on stage with artists such as Kid Rock. They also can mix their own music and test their Detroit music knowledge.

The new outdoor Legends Plaza features handprints from a number of Detroit's biggest names, including Barry Sanders, Al Kaline and Elmore Leonard.
