  • The Ann Arbor Hands-On museum needs to take Covid-19 seriously. Visiting the museum I was floored that this is a children's museum, but the adults were unmasked, social distancing did not exist and...  more »
  • A great museum for children! From toddlers to preteens, everyone has something new to learn! I've been going since I was two, and it still fascinates me! From Sheilds where you whisper into and can...  more »
  • So much fun for all ages. 2 teenagers, 1 11 year old and an 8yr old really enjoyed themselves. Great value lots to do.  more »
  • Really great experience! We took our 18 month old son and he had a great time. He couldn't enjoy all areas, however the floor dedicated to his age group was perfect. My only feedback is to clean the nursing room, it smelled so awful that I had to leave immediately and go nurse my daughter elsewhere.
  • Over all good place for kiddos, burn out after 3-4 hours tops, a little pricey (50$ for 4 people) but you are able to leave (get lunch) and come back in the same day which did help. Love all the learning and how much learning is going on even with out them knowing. It would be nice if there were more people around to help guide/answer questions or even "present" some of the exhibits.
  • I got the year round membership and it was soo worth it! We were able to take grandparents and 2 additional friends for free all year round. Our membership expires at the end of this October and I would say we've been here almost 8 times through out the year. My almost 3 year old truly enjoys and always wants to go back. Definitely recommend
  • I took my great nieces ages 4 and 5 along with there Mom. We parked around the corner at a public yet meter pay lot, and ate at Zingerman's a block away. Good food yet pricey. Then walked up and over a block to the museum. The kids REALLY, REALLY had a OUTSTANDING TIME. It was an AWESOME DAY.
  • Lots of diverse learning activities for kids in preschool through about 5th grade. Although, I took my 18 month old and he had a blast. This would be a great place for a field trip. And right now they have a discounted admission price for Bridge Card holders through Sept. 30, 2019.
