The Upper Peninsula Children’s Museum features engaging and innovative exhibits and programs that aim to educate children on subjects like art, health, science, and the environment. Opened in March 1997, the Upper Peninsula Children’s Museum was the result of a five-year strategic plan to engage Marquette locals in developing a community-based museum that would act as a cultural and communal hub for the city.
There are a ton of different exhibits to explore at the Marquette’s children’s museum. Explore the Creature Kingdom to interact with reptiles from across the globe, or explore the cockpit of a real jet in the Over the Air exhibit! In the Human Body exhibit, kids can climb through an interactive exhibit that teaches them about the functions of a human body, or learn about the water cycle in the Where’s Your Water exhibit.
