“It is not possible to say what a great place this is!!!!!!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This place is so much fun for kids of all ages. So much to do. So much to experience. Kids of all ages, from as little as 1 and 1/2 or 2 right on up. Not over crowded. I was heart broken we had to leave I was having so much fun watching my grandchildren ( ages 7, 5, and 2) having so much fun. What a great place. Price so worth it. Only problem is parking which is always a real problem in Ann Arbor. Best if one adult can drop everyone else off and then join them after parking, especially in the cold weather since the nearest parking structure, especially for the little ones, is not so close. A not to miss place to go with kids.

“A2 HOM is a Great Place for kids”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum has something for every kid, and the kid in everyone. You can build with materials, play with water, see how a house is built, climb in an ambulance, experiment with sound, stand inside a bubble, climb a wall, and the list goes on and on. There is a room especially for younger kids, though they'll like all the other rooms on the multiple floors, too. Also conveniently located within walking distance of downtown Ann Arbor and Kerrytown. There are lots of children's museums in Michigan, but this is one of the best.

“Fun for kids”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

It is right in downtown Ann Arbor. A lot of fun foe kids to visit and enrich their knowledge. Afterwards, take them to a nearby restaurant to have a nice meal.

“Great for grandchildren”
Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

The Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum is a must see each time my young grandchildren come to visit. It's particularly attractive when the weather isn't good and we are looking for something active for the grand kids to do that we also enjoy.
