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

We LOVE this "museum"! My kids are now 9 & 6 and still love going here. What I like best is the focus on imaginative play--a kid-sized grocery store, pizza parlor, stage & fire engine just to name a few! We have easily spent 3 hours here, especially when friends have joined us. Bring a lunch (nothing close by to... More

We took our 3 year old grandson today. Had a great time. So many things to do and pretend and play with. We only had 1-1/2hours, probably could have used twice that much time but we ran into lunch and nap time! Many hands on toys. The favorite was the undersea room with the hide and seek noodles and the... More

I took my 11 year old and 5 year old....they both had a great time and didnt want to leave! I love encouraging the imaginative, and educational play. Prices are great, facility is clean, and the kids just had a great time in a scaled down town. They had a stage with curtains, and costumes, a grocery store with little... More

We have a 2 1/2 yr old and a 10 month old. We couldn't have asked for more. They played and had a good time. There aren't a ton of exhibits, but it seems just the right amount for the age it's aimed at. They also have an outdoor garden which you can work and pick in season, and we... More

My daughter loved going here when she was younger. Price is a little steep, but as long as she had fun that was all the mattered! Some staff can be a little rough for young kids, but not too bad. Would suggest for kids 2-6, as my daughter got closer to 7 the novelty wore off.

My niece is 5, she loved it here. I will say it seems small but enough to entertain a young child for hours. They need to update, some toys are very old and the costumes are few. The rock wall was her favorite. I liked the music room best myself.

We were stuck in a rut, with nothing fresh to do, so we decided to try the Flint Children's Museum. I checked the website first, because we have our own children's museum here in Saginaw. It looked "similar, but different". So, we made the road trip, and it was well worth it. It was similar only in that it was... More

Lots of fun for the little ones ( and the not so little ones, too). The back room tends to stay fresh and change every so often.

My daughter loved the Flint Children's Museum 25 years ago, and my granddaughter loves it today! Each time my granddaughter visits me we take a trip to the Flint Children's Museum for an afternoon filled with fun. There are areas for children of toddler years on up through late elementary. The museum features science activities disguised as fun, dress up... More
