I took my 10-year old and 8-year old. They were a little too old for the museum. Try to catch the free Saturdays! Go outside in the courtyard when weather permits. I took my girl scout troop too! My daughters actually loved the grocery shop.

My family and I spent the afternoon at the Children's Museum in Flint. We went on the Saturday before Easter. My two grandchildren, ages 5 and 3 were with us. They both were entertained for over 2 hours. The displays covered many areas as Math, Science and Drama. They went back to many of the areas to continue their exploration.... More

We took our granddaughter here and while I like the overall concept of what they are trying to do, I feel like they need to put a little more into maintaining the exhibits. Some of the exhibits were partially broken, but our granddaughter still had a great time. One major note: Do not let the current Flint water situation deter... More

We went on a non school day and it was very crowded. most of the toys and pieces of game play were missing and strewed throughout the museum....mostly due to parents sitting on their butts while their kids ran about. While the museum is great for imaginary play it tends to be a free for all when overrun. Puppets were... More

Wonderful hands-on areas for young children to explore and play. I brought my 2 year old and 5 year old and both enjoyed the physical science displays, the climbing wall, and 'town' set up. We easily spent 3 hours interacting within the building. Highly recommend, although I wish the parents didn't have to pay ;)
