You should go. I recommend because it is a best kept secret. I have been to the Children's Museum in Grand Rapids as well and Flint does not disappoint. There is a great dramatic play area, science station, and a play grocery store stocked with food and groceries that my children absolutely loved. The bathrooms are clean and the staff... More

We've been here twice, once in the summer of 2013 and again in the summer of 2015. Most of the exhibits were identical. My kids (11, 9, 6, and 1) all enjoyed the various areas designed for their particular ages. The pretend post office, grocery store, and pizza shop were particularly engaging both times we visited. We used a Groupon... More

The children's museum is a great day trip to take. There is so much for your kids to do. They have a large variety of experiences. Great for 2 years through around 12. A lot of kids love using the green screen and seeing themselves on TV. They also have things like firemen clothing, a musical floor, and a carriage... More

They try... Not what your going to get in a big city but kids still had fun. A lot of their physical items were dated but the information has been updated.

We went yesterday with our 2 year old grandson. The area is all on one floor making it nice for most youngsters. For a small place it has many separate areas to play and learn based on your children's ages. For the 2 year old it was a two hour adventure. There were party's going on while we were there... More

Very entertaining for children under 10 yrs old. My grandchildren love to spend several hours here. There are permanent attractions where the children join others to pretend including a dressup stage with a camera and TV and seating for an audience, a post office, pizzaria, playhouse, firestation & truck amoung other sets... An area where a changing scenerio encourages imaginative... More

The Flint Children's Museum is old and not pretty, but the children have a great time going through all the interactive activities. There are many cool things for children to learn, play,socialize and meet new friends I would say the activities are geared for children ages 1-12 I recommend checking out the website" thefcm,org. Most of the exhibits are constant,... More

We took our great grandkids age 8 and 6. They loved every minute of the visit. The 6 year old loved the climbing wall. The 8 year old loved the post office and the puppet theater. This great grandma loved the pizza parlor where the brick oven is so cool. I think we spent the most time there - the... More

Took my 2 year old son to the Flint Children's Museum (FCM). This place is amazing. It's not large like our hometown children's museum, the National Children's Museum, but it is sooooo much better. FCM is creative, innovative, educational and fun. The outside garden had water games, sand, a vegetable garden, hula hoops, and was just relaxing!!! This is a... More
