Second Saturdays for Families

Location: First Floor Time Lab, Michigan History Museum, Lansing
Time: Drop-in, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Are you a nature buff? Have you ever wanted to build your own bug hotel? How about building a paper boat to race against friends? Now, it's your turn!

The Michigan History Museum presents a final Second Saturdays for Families program in celebration of our just-ended special exhibit, The River that Changed the World.

Adults and kids will love this creative hands-on activity:

  • September 8: Great Lakes Lighthouses
    With more than 3,000 miles of shoreline, it's no wonder that Michigan boasts more lighthouses than any other state. The Au Sable River, which empties into Lake Huron, once had a lighthouse to help vessels find the mouth of the river. Design and take home your own lighthouse.

Each Second Saturdays for Families program is included with museum admission. You can save on admission and receive other great benefits when you become a Michigan History Center member.

The Michigan History Museum—flagship of the Michigan History Museum System—is located in the east wing of the Michigan Library and Historical Center. Sunday admission and weekend parking are free. Read more Michigan History Museum visitor information.

We invite you to explore our online calendar, where you'll find all Michigan History Center events throughout the state.
