Although the children's museum wasn't for us we enjoyed touring the Fire Barn and Scolnik House. The docents were great and answered all our questions.

This museum is small and kids will likely race through several of the exhibits to the more hands-on areas. However, the hands-on areas have some very fun and interesting items to work through. There's not more than an hour or so of activity here, but it is worth the trip for a rainy afternoon or similar.

This place was really nice. We didn't have much time till closing but still enjoyed it. It is really set up for kids. The location downtown is nice. The price is super low so everyone can go. This would be great for something to do with your kids on a rain day. The staff was super nice and helpful.

We spent a rainy afternoon here with grandkids. They loved finding all the animals in the habitats. You can easily spend a couple hours here. The kids had a great time.

You don't have to be from Muskegon to appreciate the exhibits. Yes, the focus is on local history (rightly) but the "Coming to the Great Lakes" hall, which tells the history of humans settling here, from Native Americans to today, is relevant to all Michiganders.That hall and the "Michigan through Time" hall, which tells the geological story of Michigan, as revealed by its fossils, from 500 million years ago, when Michigan and most of North America was covered by a shallow sea, to the Pleistocene glacial Eposh, are total immersion experiences--the lighting, exhibits, and even sounds surround you. The activities in the hands-on room are engaging, and most of them are working (a real problem in hands-on exhibits); adults will enjoy them as well. Bonus--the gift shop is attractively laid out, and stocked with quality items, with an emphasis on Michigan and locally produced items and an excellent selection of education and fun books for both children and adults.
