Grand Rapids Children’s Museum
With a focus on cooperative learning, teaching problem solving and building self-esteem, the Grand Rapids Children’s Museum has a whole host of exhibits designed to promote early childhood education. Science is the focus of the Spin Table, the Bell Run and the Funstruction tables where kids can experiment with physics while they play. Kids can learn all about how the world works as they discover agriculture at Aunt Daisy’s Farm, sell and shop for goods at the Mom and Pop Store, or the Play Day Cafe, send mail at the play Post Office and explore economics at the Wee Bank. For a little creativity stimulation, spend some time playing make believe at the Amigo Amphitheater, creating designs with the Giant Lite Brite, or putting on a show at the Puppet Show.
