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

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
