Dow, who conducted his pioneering chemical experiments in a nearby shed. The museum is housed in a replica of a gristmill. Exhibits include Dow’s first office and his father’s workshop. A 12-minute video presentation features a miniature image of Dow explaining his contributions to chemistry.

Next to the mill is a replica of the 1890 Midland Chemical Co., Dow’s first manufacturing plant. A laboratory, steam engine and chemical tank help convey the humble beginnings of the Dow Chemical Co.
