  • My kids had fun. Well laid out and some good ship historical bits. I think the price is too high for what is there.
  • Absolutely amazing place for children to enjoy themselves and experiment their adventure side with all hands on activities.
  • Really enjoy letting the kids play here. An opportunity to explain and teach your kids about science and nature.
  • The grandkids enjoyed the indoor fun and educational exhibition recreational displays on a late fall day... all Pure Michigan Indoor Fun.
  • Fun place for the kids to play and learn at the same time. Didn't expect the size to be as small as it is yet the layout accommodates many children and adults comfortably. Clean and safe educational fun for the family.
