Interested in more than the typical field trip for your group? Young children and students of Michigan history benefit from visits that concentrate on one part of the exhibits or a few selected galleries rather than trying to see the whole museum. There is a fee for these specialized programs that range from 90 minutes to three hours and incorporate hands-on elements. See information about our extended tours.
