The Midland Center for the Arts was professional and timely. The concert was beyond my expectations. I can't say enough good about them and the venue.

As a volunteer at MCFTA I have spent a lot of time there. It is an outstanding facility with a lot of different offerings. From concerts by well known artists, plays performed by very talented locals, concerts by the Midland orchestra with a very talented conductor to classes in a variety of crafts and a continually changing museum, MCFTA has...

The Center has great permanent exhibits for kids of all ages. Including the adults that take them. They also have exhibits that change periodically. It is clean, well kept and has lots of volunteers and workers to assist if necessary, The music room and the building area are always favorites.

Whether you're here for theater or for the history, or maybe a special exhibit, this place is great! I love bringing new people here to show them a little history of Midland.

Took my grandkids here for a day for something different to do. The dinosaur exhibit was on & they enjoyed that but what was the most fun for them is all the "hands on" activities that there is to do. Playing the instruments was the most fun for them. But doing a TV5 weather for cast was a riot too.... More

This was AWESOME according to my son, and I totally agree! We were expecting to spend an hour or so.... we spent 6 and could have stayed even longer (but they were closing). The museum is completely HANDS-ON. There are exhibits from making your own fireworks (virtually) to playing instruments to being "on TV" as a news anchor or weather... More

We attended for the Be the Dino exhibit, our young family is currently in the dinosaur obsessed stage so anything dino related a must see, but we're surprised to find this amazing little museum. Be the Dino combines traditional dinosaur exhibit elements with video game modules that allow the player to interact as the dinosaurs, younger children will need help... More
