What is there to do?

One of the most satisfying things is when you finally understand how something works, and you've learnt something new!

The Grand Rapids Children's Museum is an interactive, and importantly fun, museum where kids can play, explore and learn at their own pace!

There are both permanent and temporary exhibitions, so you know you can keep going back to your favorites, but there will always be something new to see!

The Wee Discover zone is one of the popular permanent areas for kids up to 5 years old, with a special place reserved for those little explorers who have yet to learn to crawl.

Fun, colorful rolling balls make their way through rainbows and ramps, or they can cook a gourmet meal in the imagination loving kitchen!  There are loads of shapes, colors and textures for them to enjoy.

Clean up on aisle 5!  You can enjoy shopping at the Mom & Pop store as you grab a cart and fill it with groceries, or create your own 3D designs using fun, translucent and colorful tiles.  How high can you stack them using the magnets?!

See what the world looks like through a giant bubbles, or get up close to the busy buzzing bees at a real working beehive!  Do you know how they make honey? 

Those active kids can enjoy over 400 foam blocks, tubes and balls in Imagination Playground where they can build forts, robots, spiders or even elephants, or they can grab their hard hat and head off to Kidstruction Zone!  Foam walls, pipe mazes and wheelbarrows will keep them on their toes! 

Just don't forget to take that imagination and creativity with you!
