Exhibits run the gamut from the Water Cycle, which lets kids run through the stages of evaporation and precipitation in a fun play space, to the Art Pavilion, where kids can make their own water-themed craft.
Great Lakes Children's Museum
Great Lakes Children's Museum celebrates youngsters' innate curiosity by providing them with interactive exhibits that encourage exploration and use engaging, hands-on activities to teach visitors about everything from natural science to regional history. To learn about the water cycle, kids can mimic the path of a raindrop by climbing a set of stairs, crawling across a cloud-like platform, and then sliding back down to the ground while learning about evaporation, condensation, and precipitation.
At one of the museum's most popular exhibits, the water table, parents can work alongside their children and discover how to use insertable pieces to redirect the water's flow, create standing waves, or form swirling eddies. Encouraging this sort of interaction between family members helps foster a lifelong passion for learning by allowing adults and children to work together as they gain new knowledge about the world around them.
