    My husband, daughter and I are here visiting from out of town. We decided that this would be a nice little outing for my daughter and her cousin and it was. My daughter and niece really enjoyed the water station. My only complaint was the RIDICULOUS PRICE FOR ADULTS! There is absolutely nothing there for us to enjoy. We are there supervising or children. Why on earth are we being charged 12.50??!! We had 4 adults who were parents and 2 children. We paid $60+. We definitely won't be back until my child is at least in 3rd grade where she can enjoy the larger section of the museum.

    This was our first visit and it definitely won't be our last. Our 3 yr old and our 1 yr old both loved all the things they have to do. Their toddler area was amazing and really gets the kids thinking all while having a blast. Highly recommend!

    Took my daughter here for the first time, her second hands on museum experience (the first being the Mid-Michigan Hands On Museum in Saginaw). The price per person is 12.50 and you have to use a parking garage that costs 1.60 per hour. Most of the exhibits are basically pushing buttons besides the water tables exibit and the foam building blocks. Overall, I believe the price per person is not worth it and would not go back again. I think the one in Saginaw was much better and offered many more interactive full hands on activities and is cheaper.

    Very fun place for kids just a little expensive unless you go often and get a membership which is worth it especially with discounts at other science places. Docked down a start because we are not fans of the hours. We would love to come after school but but by the time we fight traffic and finding a parking spot the place closes... wish you guys stayed opened until 6 during the week Although I know Thursday has a later time that doesn’t work for everyone.

    Lots of fun for kids. We love this place. It's a great place for kids to explore and play. As an engineer I especially love the ball run in the preschool area. Some tips though: 1. The worse the weather the bigger the crowds. If its rainy or snowy it tends to get crowded quickly. 2. Go during nap time. It tends to calm down during the 12:00-1:00 hour, giving your little one the most freedom to play. 3. Keep an eye on your kid. This is a happening place, with lots of kids running around and lots of fun play to be had. It's not a place to drop your kid off and hop on your phone for an hour. I'm there with my family to have fun, not watch your child terrorize other kids. 4. You can bring in outside food if you eat it in the back cafeteria area. They don't really advertise this, but its a good way to grab a quick snack. 5. Parking can be challenging. Be prepared for a bit of a walk by parking at either the Ann street deck ($3) or one of the surface lots. Just be prepared to walk 1 or two blocks. They have lots of fun programs and activities throughout the day that are good for older (3-6) kids. Overall its a fun place to play and explore. We'll definitely be going back many times in the future.
