The Children's Museum celebrates childhood and the joy of learning by providing an interactive, hands-on experience that encourages self-directed exploration.
Eighteen permanent exhibits include Aunt Daisy's Farm, Mom & Pop Store, Treehouse, Giant Lite Brite, Wee Discover, Wee Bank, Puppet Stage, Buzzy Buzzy Bees and Bubbles, Bubbles, Bubbles!
These are supplemented with rotating featured exhibits that engage and encourage young minds and bodies.
The Children's Museum is located in downtown Grand Rapids, just a short walk from hotels. The 1916-era building is hard to miss: large expanses of plate glass give passersby a view of the fun inside and one exterior wall is covered with a large mosaic that was originally installed for ArtPrize 2009.
