  • This museum is small and kids will likely race through several of the exhibits to the more hands-on areas. However, the hands-on areas have some very fun and interesting items to work through...  more »

  • Through my company Tours Around Michigan, I brought a family here from Minnesota who is considering moving to West Michigan. I was hired by an employer as a recruiting helper to show the family the area in ways tailored to their personal needs and interests to encourage them to move here. It went great and the museum's STEM room especially was a massive hit. The kids (21-months and 7-yrs) and the parents LOVED it!
  • A great museum been there a few times and plan to go again has a nice little gift shop
