Hands-On Holidays at the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum

Families can learn more about science during the holiday season at this Washtenaw County annual event, running Dec. 26, 2017-Jan. 7, 2018.

Besides celebrating St. Nick and the start of the New Year in the upcoming weeks, families can celebrate creativity and imagination at the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum’s Hands-On Holidays event.

“Every single day, we will have hands-on activities that will run until 4 p.m., and every single day there is also a special performer of some sort,” says Nichole Wright, public programs and volunteer manager at the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum.

Dec. 26, 2017-Jan. 7, 2018, families can participate in 13 days of various activities, projects and science. Kids can experience the coolest STEAM-focused make-and-take projects, hands-on experiments and more.

You’ll also get to enjoy performances each day, which will include some of the museum’s best performers like Yo-Yo Master Zeemo, The Music Lady Beverly Meyer, Bubble Man Ron Loyd and Professor Ray, who returns with his Everyday Science events.

Join in the family friendly fun – and of course, the hands-on activities! Admission is $12.50 for adults and kids 2 and up. The event times are as follows:

  • 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Dec. 26-30 and Jan. 2-6
  • noon-4 p.m. Dec. 31-Jan 1 and Jan. 7
