  • We needed a place to burn off some steam, the UP children's museum was perfect. The museum had a wide variety of fun, hands on things for kids to do. There were animals the kids could hold, a "toilet"...  read more »
  • 4 of us, 2 adults and 2 children, spent 6 days driving across the U.P. We stayed one night in Marquette and I was so happy to find this place! My two kids, aged 7 & 4, had an absolute blast as did we!...  read more »
  • Took our 1 year old and 6 year old boys to the children's museum. Had so much fun we ended up going back after lunch and spending the rest of the day. Just hang on to your receipt for re-entry. All th...  read more »
  • This is such a fun place to take kids in Marquette. Great exhibits and a friendly staff.
  • More of a playhouse than a museum. The few scientific displays or demonstration machines they had were all broken when we went there. Kinda run down generally. It is great fun for younger kids, but not as huge as I had imagined it would be. Parents might get bored after an hour or so. Despite not being super huge, the place is a maze... I have to say the issue of fire safety did cross my mind there. Also a great place for kids to swap germs. That probably sounds paranoid or over-protective, but at least outdoor playgrounds are sanitized somewhat by rainfall and the sun's UV radiation. We had free tickets from Beacon House; if it costs $18 for two parents and one child to enter, we will probably not go back.
  • Good place to take the kids and have some indoor fun for a few hours.
  • Kids ages 1-13 and adults 24-35... WE HAD A GREAT TIME!! It taught us all kinds of stuff, we got to make things with arts and crafts, hold and learn about animals/reptiles. We learned about electricity, put on a puppet show, ran a restaurant, grocery store, learned about fossils, minerals, and learned about water, where it comes from, and where it goes... We had hours and hours of fun! There is so much to do, and so many things to see! It may not live up to some expectations but it sure did ours! We loved it and WILL BE RETURNING! =D
  • Hands on learning for kids and adults. A place for kids and their parents to play together. Flush Dad down the 'toilet', go grocery shopping with mom, slide down the intestines or pilot the airplane to anywhere your heart desires. After that check out the gift store with a section of merchindise made by kids ages 8 and up!
