Both of my children have always loved going to the Flint Children's Museum. They had a special Valentine's event in February and I took my two year old daughter who loved it. They had cookies and juice and she made a Valentine's card for her older brother. The kitchen play area and store is a favorite spot. You can take... More

All hands on play areas including the theater which our kids loved, and a little community area complete with a post office, grocery store and pizazz aria.... More

My daughters went there for a birthday party and really enjoyed their time. We were there for hours and they did not want to leave. They are 5 and 8 years old. Lots of fun for all ages!

Not the largest place but they have excellent exhibits and hands on activities for the kids. I was surprised at how engaged my boys were. Definitely worth the time. Cost is reasonable

I took my five year old niece and two year old nephew. They had a blast and totally engaged. However, the other children weren't as closely supervised as I would have liked and this resulted in limited sharing of items in the kitchen and restaurant.

I took my 10-year old and 8-year old. They were a little too old for the museum. Try to catch the free Saturdays! Go outside in the courtyard when weather permits. I took my girl scout troop too! My daughters actually loved the grocery shop.

They both were entertained for over 2 hours. The displays covered many areas as Math, Science and Drama. They went back to many of the areas to continue their exploration.... More

We took our granddaughter here and while I like the overall concept of what they are trying to do, I feel like they need to put a little more into maintaining the exhibits. Some of the exhibits were partially broken, but our granddaughter still had a great time. One major note: Do not let the current Flint water situation deter... More
