Its hands-on Discover Gallery features interactive engagement with the arts and sciences.

We spend a week in the Traverse City area every summer, and when we have a rainy day, we always head for the Dennos Museum. Our kids are young and they aren't much interested in the art displays, but they LOVE the Interactive Discovery Gallery. It is a small area just off the main lobby with lots of hands-on activities the kids can enjoy. The highlight for them is the room that projects their images on the wall with psychadelic outlines and colors (see video). They dance around in there, watching their changing images. We typically spend about a half an hour in the Interactive Discovery Gallery, then take a quick buzz through another part of the museum.
