I payed 23 $ for adults (with planetarim and IMAX) and 20 for the children, I expected another thing! Much of the exhibitions did not work. There is no place to take a good coffee, It was cold inside and with no much light. Planetarium exhibitium was a woman talking without much energy about the stars...
It has no comparison with DIA (Detroit Institute of Arts, which is much cheaper) or Ann Harbor Hands on museum!!
I did not like, as I said, too expensive for what it is...

Excellent opportunity to teach hands-on science. Good for all ages. It's definitely worthwhile to get a membership if you can. The ima and planetarium shows were amazing.
