Stingray Cove: Now Open!

rsz_1logo_stingraycove_2See and touch living sea creatures found on coral reefs and other tropical habitats in Stingray Cove. Learn about freshwater stingrays, starfish and other coral inhabitants. Gaze at sea horses, tropical fish and much more in this hands-on exhibit. It’s the perfect companion with our Journey to the South Pacific IMAX® film. Exhibit will run June 21 – Aug. 31, 2014.

Please note: Stingray Cove is a timed exhibit – guests will be assigned tickets for a specific time. Visits to Stingray Cove are scheduled every 30 minutes in order to limit the stress to our sea life and to keep them happy and comfortable.

Kidstruction Zone: Now Open!

Calling all children! Do you like to build and create? The Michigan Science Center’s newest hands-on Kidstruction Zone exhibit is just for you (parents can sit back and relax while you invent). This 3,000 square foot space is designed with 10 separate build zones for the architect or engineer inside us all. Build large structures with giant LEGO® bricks, create detailed buildings with Keva planks, invent futuristic vehicles with k’nex and get inspired with other Kidstruction building supplies. Great for all ages, Kidstruction Zone is free with paid museum admission.
