Ann Arbor is a college town that offers many things to do with children, or just on your own. The UM has the Art Mueseum on State street, the Bently Historical muesum on North Campus, and lots more.

We spent the morning here and all three of our kids loved it. $10 person but the yearly pass was only $75. It also gets you discounts at other museums all over the country. Tons of fun and lots of things for the whole family to do!

One can spend a couple of hours here and really enjoy it. We've been many times. If you go more than twice a year, a membership is cheaper. Easy parking too, even though it's on street.

Went on a date at this place. My boyfriend and I had so much fun. It is geared toward kids but adults can have fun too. It was also very educational.

Really fun for kids and adults. Science comes alive here...I usually learn right along with my kids. Visit the firehouse that is by the museum...they love kids, and gave my kids hats!
