“Something New”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

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.

“Excellent Kid Science Center”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

This was a trip with some of my friends that live in East Lansing. Our two one-year-olds had a wonderful time and we explored the rest of the building as well. The best part was the play area for the little ones, however the rest of the museum looked fun for older kids.

“Impression Five”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

I took my eleven year old daughter here while on a visit. It was a nice area. There were many things for her to do involving music, building, bubbles, sound, water, etc. We like to travel, so she has been to many science centers across the country. This one isn't that big, but it will suit for a few hours. My only drawback was parking. We went on a day that several field trips were in attendance and could not find a parking space close.
