About Us

Located on the corner of Warren Ave. and John R St. in Midtown, the Michigan Science Center is one of several nonprofit organizations in Detroit’s cultural district. With live stage shows, an IMAX® Dome, a 4D theater, a Planetarium, an 8,700 square foot special exhibit hall, and 200+ hands-on exhibits, the Science Center has a lot to offer children and adults alike. 

Affectionately known as MiSci, we pride ourselves on being a STEM engagement hub where discovery learning and interactive participation meet. Our exhibits, programs and science shows explore various topics in STEM and promote literacy and understanding of the natural world and the built environment.

Our Mission

The mission of the Michigan Science Center (MiSci) is to inspire curious minds of all ages to discover, explore and appreciate science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) in a creative, dynamic learning environment.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, MiSci relies on the generous support of donors, sponsors, community partners and members.
"Putting you at the center of science is about meeting you where you are, personalizing your experience and empowering you to discover for yourself the process and principles of science."
Christian Greer
President and CEO

Strategy

Our strategy is to develop innovative ways to ignite a learner’s natural curiosity. With a creative blend of onsite, offsite and online experiences, we invite curious minds of all ages to ask questions and seek answers through active participation in the process of science.

Although our interactive exhibits and immersive theaters are core elements of our overall value to guests, we also believe in the power of personalization in creating relevant and meaningful learning opportunities regardless of your background or level of experience in STEM. With our live stage shows, pop-up pocket demonstrations and distance-learning programs, we put YOU at the Center of Science, allowing you to discover for yourself.
