There is a lot to see and do at the science center. However, some of our programs and experiences may have changed as a result of the impacts of COVID-19 and our recent water damage. This includes the configuration of our exhibits.
We want to make your visit as safe and as enjoyable as possible. The Michigan Science Center is Checked by NSF for compliance with sanitation standards. We have pledged to protect your health with Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau’s Go Safely Initiative.
10:00 AM – 4:00 PM
We are currently offering special reduced rates for all guests! Admission is $12 for all ages.
Tickets to paid theater experiences are $6 for general admission guests, $3 for members, and free for premium members.
NOTE: The Michigan Science will be closed to the public on Friday, October 22, 2021 for a private event.

Directions and Parking
Located in the heart of Midtown Detroit, our street address is 5020 John R. Street, Detroit, MI 48202
There is metered parking on the streets around MiSci. The Cultural Center lot and several Wayne State University parking structures are available. Prices and hours vary.
We believe science exploration should be accessible to everyone, regardless of their financial situation. MiSci offers a variety of ways to save on admission. While we do encourage guests to reserve tickets through our website, some discounts are not available with website reservations. To ensure everyone has access, we hold a number of walk-up tickets in our inventory each day.
The Science Store is a great resource for extending the learning and the fun! We offer lots of STEM-themed merchandise including t-shirts, science kits, thinking toys, puzzles and plush. The Science Store is conveniently located near the entrance and exit, but it is open only during Science Center hours.
