About
The museum is a place to explore, learn new things, and have fun! Did you know that play is vital to children’s social and emotional growth? Plus, it contributes to fine and gross motor development and body awareness. As PBS’s Mr. Rogers put it, “Play is really the work of childhood.” Every day, we work hard to provide a hands-on, “Play and Learn” environment that engages and motivates children to use their curiosity and creativity to learn about the wonders of our world. We rely on talented staff, dedicated volunteers and generous community support to make our mission a reality. Let’s learn about the museum! • Big and bold: Our bright and friendly building – formerly a car dealership! – has over 16,000 square feet of gallery space. In addition, we have classrooms that we use for field trips, meetings, and birthday parties; a gift shop focused on creativity and learning; and administrative offices. • Designed just for kids: We have 10 galleries designed specifically for guests age 10 and under. Each gallery was developed around Michigan school curriculum with input from children’s museum specialists, educators, and KIDS! • Play for all: From our adaptive play web tool Museum4Me to day camp scholarships to busing assistance, we want to minimize barriers to play. Do you have an idea of how to improve museum access? We are always learning and we would be happy to hear from you! We are privileged to serve a diverse community and we are excited for what the future will bring! Because, unlike traditional museums, the Mid-Michigan Children’s Museum is all about the future – future artists, future scientists, future engineers … future community members!

Best place to take a fussy toddler who needs a distraction!
Jul 2019 • Family
My toddler was not having the best time during our camping trip and this was just the break she needed. SO much for her to do and explore. I would recommend everyone with children to check this place out. Best thing is she wore herself out and finally got a nap in afterwards!

A Must When Traveling With Young Children
Jul 2019 • Family
The place is amazing. It is very interactive. I could not get my kids to leave. All their exhibits are hands on. It’s a bargain for $7.50 a person. All materials are provided. They even have pianos, which kept my 12 year old busy.

Not enough
Jul 2018 • Family
The children's museum needs more things in it. The best things about it is probably the glasses or the poof balls that you can put into the air tubes.

Super place to take the kids
Jul 2018 • Couples
I attended a birthday party here. The 2-6 year olds at the party were in Heaven! This interactive play place is clever, creative and has so many unusual play stations for the kids.

Had a great day with my three year old Granddaughter
Aug 2018 • Family
First time I have be to the Mid Michigan Children’s Museum. It was far better than I had expected all the activities were accessible and fun for a three year old. There are so few places that are designed for young children. I would highly recommend this for a day experience for any one with kids three to seven or eight. All of the features and activities were very hands on and young kid friendly.

Fun for the Little Ones!
Jun 2018 • Family
Our girls are 2 and 4...And they both love the place. They can easily get 'lost' (in a good way) in all of the various activities and things to see and things to touch. Great value for a fun few hours--especially if you buy a family membership. Two or three visits a year covers your cost.

Speaking of, the area is safe, the property is safe and they seem to do a great job of keeping an eye on your kids, but parents--pull your head out of your iPhone and interact with them there--it's fun for us adults too! I personally have fun with the water table and the vacuum tubes that shoot the towels into the air.

Also keep an eye out for special events--they have lots of fun things going on special occasions.
