Create an itinerary including Sandcastles Children's Museum
In early 2006, a small group had a vision of creating a children’s museum. On October 25, 2006, Sandcastles, A Lake Michigan Children’s Museum, was established with a board of 6 members who applied for non-profit status. In February 2007, the board held a public meeting to explain its vision and encourage others to get involved. In March, the first exhibit, Help Us Build The Museum, went on display at the Family AfFair. In June, Sandcastles opened for its first summer on South James Street. We held a Summer Science Camp and sponsored activities at Friday Night Lives, the Mason County Fair, and Oktoberfest. We celebrated our 10th anniversary in May of 2017.

  • This is a great place to go with young kids when it's raining. We were here for nearly three hours and my kids (10, 8, 2) didn't really want to leave, but were getting hungry. There is a lot to do...

  • This was such an amazing place for the kids. I wasn't expecting much but once inside even I was blown away. Our kids couldn't stop moving. Everything is hands one. They have a bunch of different exhibits for kids to interact with. We will be back next time we are in town.
  • Cute childrens museum. Much of the items were older and could use replacing or updating. But overall it was a great place to visit.
