Curious Kids’ Discovery Zone
The Curious Kids’ Discovery Zone entertains small children to fifth graders with its interactive climbing, water, tactile and traveling exhibits. It is a must-stop for exploratory fun. This space is geared for ages 1-10, but all are invited to come “play, learn, and be curious!” The kids will love the Lake Michigan Water Table, where they can sail handmade boats through the lake currents and lock system. Another favorite exhibit is the 25-foot Lighthouse Tower, encouraging little visitors to climb the wave steps to the top and gaze out the window to catch a peek of Lake Michigan. And check out Recollections, a wall-sized dance exhibit where light and color mimic your movements on the screen.
