The Great Lakes Children’s Museum creates hands-on, interactive, and informal educational environments for children and the adults in their lives that invite curiosity, allow exploration, encourage participation, and celebrate the childlike wonder in all of us.
Why is that Important?
We believe every child can benefit from having a safe and welcoming place to explore the world around them at their own pace and in their own way. Great Lakes Children’s Museum exhibits and programs are designed to provide those opportunities for learning as a foundation to developing a lifelong love of learning.
Children also benefit from interaction with adult caregivers – and that benefit increases with quantity of interaction and frequency. Children’s museums, in general, help children learn through play and help adults learn TO play. Both parties benefit from the experience.
