The mission of the Michigan Science Center 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.


Our vision is to empower and enrich all children and all communities with STEM.


Explore hands-on exhibits, gaze at the stars in our planetarium, experience our 4D theater, and take part in live stage shows. As Michigan’s STEM Hub, we inspire curious minds of all ages.
