Grand Rapids Public Museum
Grand Rapids Public Museum has all kinds of fun for families with kids of any age. Little ones will love taking a ride on the 1928 Spillman Carousel and participating in the A-Z challenge where they search the museum’s halls for the exhibits representing each of the letters in the alphabet. Middle schoolers love the sensation of stepping back in time as they explore the life-size recreation of Grand Rapids in the 1890s, or the life-like exhibit of Michigan’s animals and plants in the Habits exhibit. Teens can appreciate all the examples of Michigan craftsmanship on display in Furniture City and learning of Michigan’s cultural diversity through the museum’s exhibition --Newcomers: The People of this Place.
