This place is fun for young and old as long as you are young at heart, you can learn some stuff and also have a really good time.
Although this museum has what I feel an overpriced admission fee, the young children will be entertained with the exhibits. I think that $11.00 admission for the children is a little excessive. As grandparents, when we take our two grandchildren to the museum it costs $44. By the time we go to the museum and have lunch/dinner, it is a... More
The Hands-on Museum may not be as great as I thought it was when I was four or five, but it's still a piece of Michigan history. For any little children (up to around 8), the museum is a paradise, and it inspires creativity. For anyone older, they're going to need some persuasion, but trust and try it at least... More
The Hands-on Museum was founded in the wake of the national sensation created by San Francisco's Exploratorium in the 1970s. While it calls itself a science museum, the Hands-on Museum falls woefully short of the standard set by the Exploratorium, and this in a town with one of the great research universities in the world. There are precious few real... More
We did a long weekend in the Ann Arbor/Dearborn area. My son had enough of The Henry Ford Museum and it was just cold enough to keep us from doing any outdoor activities. We had some time to kill before our dinner, so decided to give this a try. My son enjoyed the activities, it was very crowded, so there... More

Building/construction, medical technology, engineering, physics, optics, and much more is explored in a wide range of exhibits. For little kids, the preschool room is amazing - concepts are... More
This is a top notch kids museum. We have been to many around the country and this is the best. And it really is "hands on"! It has a great range of things to do for little ones to older ones. Parking is near-by in the public parking garages (just google public parking in Ann Arbor), and plenty of places... More
I grew up going to this Hands-On Museum and I cannot recommend it enough! There is a good balance between fun activities and learning. It kept my interest for hours until I was about 10 or 11. They have activities for even very young kids to play with. What is better than a museum where nothing is off limits?
A really good experience for kids of all ages. We have gone a couple of times per year for several years. The hands on science activities are great, as is the building block area. Our favorites are the optics rooms though, which are entrancing. Definitely worth a visit if you have never been there before!
The Hands-On Museum allows for fascinating and magical science exploration for children (and adults!). An absolute must visit for families coming to Ann Arbor.
