The Michigan Science Center is one of Detroit's most kid-friendly museums. Located very close to downtown right next to the DIA, it has been the home for traveling exhibits like 'Bodies' but the permanent exhibits are more than enough of a draw in and of themselves.
Onsite is also an IMAX theater, Planetarium and Laser Show.
Through December 31, 2013 "The Science of Rock & Roll" is teaching visitors how science and technology influenced the birth and evolution of the music they love.
A special gallery called Kids Town entertains children five years and younger so that parents with older children can roam the other areas of the museum at ease.
