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

This is a place for kids to see what it was like when Flint was the Automotive Capital. See things back then to what we are coming into the age of today.

My daughter has been here many times and its always a little different, however the mainstays are things she continues to enjoy. Lots of hands on fun and at a very reasonable cost.

We held my son's 4th birthday party at the Flint Children's Museum, inviting about 10 of his preschool friends. We had never been before, and weren't sure what to expect, given the City of Flint's reputation. However, the museum is in a nice location right next to Kettering University. The museum itself is clean, well-maintained, and really entertaining for preschool-aged... More

The Flint Children's Museum is an ok place for younger kids, but honestly after being there for about a half hour it is really boring. Every time I've been there it's the same stuff. It would be nice if they could switch some stuff out to make it more interesting. The dress up costumes are really old and nasty, the... More

It's not the easiest place to find and the neighborhood seems a little sketchy, but the place is fabulous! My youngest could stay entertained here for hours.
