Where are we going today?

Why wouldn't you want to spend the day in a place whose mission is to awaken imagination through learning and hands-on play! That's exactly the goal of the Flint Children's Museum!

This great museum is perfect for kids from around 2 years to 10, as they are filled with fascinating exhibits and fun adventures for kids, where they can develop all of their skills, from cognitive and social, to emotional and physical!

It's a place where they can have a great time, but learn key steps that will help them grow up happy and healthy.

The Flint Children's Museum have ensured that each exhibit brings something new and creative to each child.

Take The Discovery Zone, where their rotating exhibits (every three months) offer something new for the kids! The Health & Fitness exhibit lets kids learn all about their bodies, their bones, and how important it is to stay healthy. 

Our Town lets kids live in their own town, complete with grocery store, pizza parlor, and a post office! For those younger kiddies, there is Tot Spot, perfect for under 3s. Here, the exhibit space let's the toddlers enjoy age appropriate toys and activities, specifically chosen for their development.

If you have kids who LOVE engines, then Transportation Alley is for them! They can even drive their own fire truck! Can you hear the engines already?

A great place for kids to just enjoy themselves, and learn as they do so (but not realize it!). The Flint Children's Museum has every child as their no. 1 priority, so why not visit so they can give your kids the best time!

    A very nice place. There is only one region devoted to science perse. That said the other displays were pretty cool: a puppetry and shadow puppet room, small climbing wall, a sensation room for little ones, and my favorite a small city.

    The city as it were is a pizza house, grocery store, house, and car all in close proximity which gives an interesting element one rarely sees at kids museum, a way to talk about society and infrastructure.

    There is also an outdoor space that looks like they are setting up as a community garden.
