Fodor's Review

More than 400 interactive exhibits and daily demonstrations and an OMNIMAX theater await you at this indoor-outdoor educational center. Science and technology displays include a bridge of fire, a touchable indoor tornado, and an especially good area that focuses on the environment of the Great Lakes region. A working wind turbine on the front lawn provides the museum with supplemental, renewable power.

Great Place to Take the Kids

This is a great museum with lots to see and do for young and old. Young kids will love the Polymer room (an indoor play area) and older kids will love the hands-on exhibits throughout the museum. There is an informative exhibit on the Great Lakes, and you never know what traveling exhibit might be making an appearance there. Check out this museum - you won't be disappointed!
