The Michigan Science Center is located in Midtown Detroit’s cultural center. A beautiful area of the city with other cultural icons like the Detroit Institute of Arts and Wayne State University, the museum can be quickly accessed from nearby major freeways.
We recommend visiting the Detroit Convention and Visitors Bureau’s website, www.visitdetroit.com, to learn more about the city and the available hotels, restaurants and additional fun things to do in the Metro Detroit area. Their interactive map is a phenomenal tool to help with your planning efforts. We look forward to seeing you soon!
