The only thing that stops me from giving the Midland Center for the Arts an "excellent" rating is that the permanent exhibits are not great. I grew up in Midland, and many of the exhibits haven't changed since the 80's. However, my kids think they're cool, so that's a definite plus. The traveling exhibits can be small sometimes, but both... More

I have been to the museum several times. I often come for the rotating exhibit and always leave a little disappointed. The exhibits that rotate are often small and leave something to be desired. I finish my visit quickly and am left with the decision to leave, walk through the completely undesirable year-round exhibit, or meander through the over-priced gift... More

Good spot to catch concerts and plays. The other half is a museum, with a kids touch interactive gallery. They also have changing collections from art to motorcycles. stop in and check it out.

Entertainment centers like the Center for the Arts are usually found in large cities. Midland is so lucky to have this center. It is beautiful inside and out. The grounds are lovely and the area features a really great weekend art fair in early June with entertainment outdoor and good food and great art. The Christmas Art show is equally... More

this gave a great little overview of what life was like when Henry Dow started the Dow company and the struggles of life. very fun to go through. Also even though it was really hot I would have loved to go through the wet lands, we saw a deer just wandering around as we drove by interesting little town. Try... More
