We stopped in Lansing on our way to Detroit to break up the trip for our kids and add something extra to the itinerary. It feel a little short of my expectations as the exhibits were lacking in quanity and quality but over all it was good value for the price. I would not have paid more. My 2 year old really enjoyed the water area for the young kids. My 9 year old loves science but it was a little bit more difficult to keep her engaged, the exhibits were hit or miss and really need an overhaul to keep science fresh and exciting to kids. The staff was very friendly though and it accomplished our objective to try something new and break up the trip. One time was enough though, we will not be visiting again.
