Grand Rapids Children’s Museum
The Grand Rapids Children’s Museum bills itself as an environment for play and advocates for the value of play while building young minds. The museum hosts field trips, birthday parties, and group visits. The museum offers eight exhibits, including Diagnosis Fun, where kids can explore the health sciences and see what it is like to be a doctor or nurse; Little GR, where kids can explore our big city from their perspective; Amazing Dinosaurs, where kids can dig up fossils and come face-to-face with their favorite dinosaurs; Wee Discover, where the little ones five and under can explore and play with numerous items; the Classics, where kids can play with Lincoln Logs and Legos; Just Playing Around, where kids can bang on instruments and make noise; the Favorites, where kids can climb a mountain or see a honeybee hive; and finally the Bubbles exhibit, which is, you guessed it, full of bubbles.
