There are SO many themed areas in this children's museum. Our five and one year old had a blast. We go to the Ann Arbor Children's Museum frequently and this one was just as good.

This is one of the best things that you can do for your children and grandchildren. Located in a historic building in downtown Ludington, MI, this up and coming attraction will hold their interest, and keep them active for hours. We even took the whole family to their New Year's Eve party, complete with a huge balloon drop to top... More

My grandchildren (ages 2 - 6) LOVE this place. Lots of activities from that let kids explore music, art, history, aviation, real life (with a wonderful store, post office, bank, pizza/sub shop vet clinic area that they can pretend and interact with other children). Sandcastles is a small venue, but packed with things that kids love to explore. We have... More

Being from Cleveland and knowing the children's museum here as well as the huge ones in Toledo and Baltimore, I was not expecting much of the one in Ludington. I knew going in it would not be huge, but it was also $4.50 and not $25+ like the big city ones. My 2 year old had a great time. They... More
