- On the northwest side of Detroit, in the heart of gospel music country, this grass-roots music museum opened in 1995. Patterned after the funky Motown Historical Museum, the Gospel Music Hall of Fame and Museum pays tribute to national and local gospel artists, presenting exhibits on gospel music pioneers such as Thomas A. Dorsey, known as the "father of gospel." It also highlights the role the gospel tradition played in the development of Motown singers and other local stars such as Aretha Franklin. The museum relies primarily on donations. The museum is open for tours by appointment only.
