  • I have been in many children's museum, and this one is is truly special . My 6 and 9 years old loved the combination of Art (this is not just a museum, they MAKE art in that building) and technology. Worth the detour. Note that we did not pay any entry fee, because there was a reciprocity with the Michigan Science center. Beautiful building too. Note the cooling water feature a few feet away from the building (emits a water steam to cool kids)...
  • Had been last year... it’s a good museum for kids.. lot of things and activities to do for kids including some water activities ... they also have good canteen with varieties of food and soft drinks.. good family place to spend some time with your kids...Entry will be 5$ I guess, not sure of current price.. staff are helpful..
