“Great place to take the little ones”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

I liked everything about this place. It was a really great way to spend the day with my grandson. He had a ball you can play with them or just sit back and watch the fun.

“Kids had fun!”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

The day we visited the museum, they had a special event for the kids. Fire trucks, police car and coastguard were in the parking lot for the kids to check out. The museum itself was small, but big enough to keep the kids occupied for a couple of hours.

“Neat little place for kids”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

This place is certainly not large, but it is a good option for the kids to burn off energy on a cold or rainy day.

“Great Fun”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

Lots of interactive activities for toddlers and preschoolers. The lighthouse is fun to explore and climb. Lots of activities in the arts & crafts center. Fun playing in the water channel with toy boats and changing the flow of water.

“Great for a rainy day!”
Reviewed 19 June 2013

This place is not so much a museum as a play center. It is a great place to let kids have fun on a rainy or cool Michigan day! Our kids ask to go back all the time and we have been home from vacation for about two weeks!
