“an intellectual pit stop”

A wonderful place for exploring Science, Engineering, Math and Technology in a creative hands-on setting. The Michigan Science Center (Mi-Sci) is a unique, fun and dynamic hands-on museum, offering programs that inspire children and their families to discover, explore and appreciate science, technology and math in a fun, dynamic learning environment. Through an interactive approach to science with engaging, hands-on exhibits, shows and activities, Mi-Sci strives to help launch the next generation of Michigan’s engineers, scientists and innovators, and significantly impact the cultural and economic renewal of Detroit and Michigan. The museum features many exciting attractions to delight and inspire children’s curiosity and interest in science. The Science Center and all attractions are handicap accessible. Permanent attractions include: Hands-on Exhibit Galleries that address subjects such as motion, speed and direction, manufacturing, the inner workings of the human heart, the immense range of wave phenomena, the content and scale of the universe, and much more. Chrysler Science Stage, where science comes alive through interactive shows and demonstrations. DTE Energy Sparks Theater, which explores the fundamental principles of electricity and magnetism, energy conversion, and the properties of matter. Toyota Engineering Theater, a one-of-a-kind 4D experience immersing visitors in the sights, sound, feel and smell of engineering careers. Kids Town Gallery, a place where pint-size scientists can become veterinarians, test the laws of physics in a field house, learn about mixtures and solutions in the kitchen of their very own diner, or just splash, crawl and play. Chrysler IMAX® Dome Theatre, offering state-of-the-art technology for an unforgettable cinematic experience. This theatre also features Michigan’s largest movie screen. Dassault Systèmes Planetarium, featuring spectacular virtual-reality journeys that take the audience through the rings of Saturn, into a black hole or anywhere in the Universe.
