Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum


Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum

220 E Ann St, Ann Arbor, 48104-1445, MI

This interactive, hands-on children’s museum is fun for all ages, even adults. The museum, located in downtown Ann Arbor, is filled with tons of interactive learning play from the moment you walk up the steps and a virtual piano is played with each step.

The H2O room is a huge draw with giant water tables, spouts and sprays. Kids will also love the full-size ambulance, where they can climb inside and drive or help a patient in the back.

Other features include a dance area with laser lights that sense your body heat; a sound room where kids can create their own music; a rock wall to climb; a bubble maker; and a general store where kids can buy supplies. There’s also a toddler area with tons for the younger kids to climb on, build and explore.

The more than 250 exhibits allow families to learn science, math, health and technology, all through play.

10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily

Things to Know/Bring
There are touchscreens to be found at many of the exhibits and a child or adult can interact with the screen, telling it the age or grade level of your child. That specific exhibit will then be tailored to your child.

The area is surrounded by paid street parking and paid parking structures.
