Kids & Families

With FREE admission to Michigan's largest dinosaur display, the U-M Museum of Natural History is sure to delight children and their adults! Our Hall of Evolution is filled with all kinds of prehistoric life including the only mastodon couple on display in the world. Families can explore the Michigan Wildlife Gallery, archaeology and geology exhibits or enjoy a trip into space in our planetarium. (Planetarium tickets are $5.)  On most weekends and daily in the summer, the Museum offers dinosaur tours and hands-on demonstrations. (Donations accepted.)


The Museum also hosts popular FREE events such as ID Day, Family Halloween Party, and Discovery Days. Summer camps and birthday parties are also available.
