  The Detroit Historical Museum in Detroit is seen Wednesday, Nov. 21, 2012. The museum is reopening with a bang, six months after the venerable institution in the city’s cultural center closed up shop to undergo its first major renovation in a half-century. Starting at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, the museum will stay open for 55.5 consecutive hours free of charge to anyone who wants to come in and take a look. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio)
