Tips for families when visiting the Michigan Science Center

  • If you have a SNAP EBT card and a picture ID, general admission tickets are only $3/person for up to four people in your group.
  • It is recommended that all guests (including members) make reservations ahead of time.
  • Make sure to use the restroom before heading up to the fourth floor, as there isn’t a restroom on that floor.
  • The center’s Early Child Learning Space has recently been expanded to include new activities for kids under 5. Find building materials and interactive components that teach basic concepts of light and outer space, STEM Story Time (2 p.m. on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday weekly), and the Young Explorers program that features weekly classes on alternating Wednesdays and Sundays that focus on literacy, social-emotional learning, play, pattern-recognition and motor skills.
