  • Took my granddaughter at four years old. She had a great time at the hands on area and enjoyed many of the other exhibits that are hands on. And it is free!! 
  • I've visited this museum many times. My young children (ages 2 and 4) enjoy the kids area and all the interactive exhibits they have built into the rest of the museum, especially the music and the ice...  more »
  • My husband and I stopped in to this lovely museum. I actually did not have high expectations, but was blown away by this place! 3 floors of exhibits. Tons of interactive displays, for adults and kids....  more »

  • My family and I absolutely love the museum here. And it's free!!! It is probably my 3 year olds favorite place to go, and they always have interesting new exhibits every few months that helps shake things up a bit. Right now they're doing a Lego exhibit and we've probably gone for that around 6 times already! But their regular exhibits are impressive themselves, it's a really good place for kids (and adults, too) to go to learn something new in a fun and hands on way. They also have a room on the second floor for kids under 5 to learn and play that is filled with books and puzzles and toys and we really love that, as well.
  • Somewhat small, but free. This museum had a lot of entertaining and interesting exhibits to see! I wish I spent more time on the second floor which seemed to go on forever. In addition to the historical artifacts, much of the museum features artifacts highlighting Michigan's history. The kids museum section was also impressive! There were plenty of interactive displays and a play area for kids of all ages to play. Story time and other activities were also scheduled. My son could have spent the entire day here if I let him. If you're a local and since this is free, it's a no brainer to take advantage of the kids museum here!
  • I love taking my grandkids there. They're eyes light up when I ask if they want to go because they have fun! They're young enough to not realize they're minds are learning and experiencing great things! A great museum well thought out and operated!
  • Great free museum. Geared towards middle school-aged children but fun for the whole family. Quite a bit of local history, and fun rotating exhibits.
  • The kids are having a wonderful time. The current Lego exhibit is a lot of fun. Also, free admission always and free parking on Sundays. I am really impressed with the level of permanent exhibits for this small free to the public museum.
