As parents it often seems difficult to find the right place to take our children. We are often skeptical when it comes to educating our children in a safe environment.
We want you to understand that you are not alone in this even finding the right Children’s Museum in your area can feel like too much research. Below are a few places we have researched, that can provide a safe and fun environment for your child:
Detroit Children’s Museum-
The Detroit Children’s Museum was originally opened in 1917 to help educate the children with arts & culture. The Detroit Children’s Museum was closed in 2009 to help trim the budget for Detroit Public Schools who have been running the museum since 1925.
However in late June the Detroit Children’s Museum is scheduled to re-open. The museum features interactive exhibits and teaches the children about arts & culture. For more information on the Detroit Children’s Museum visit http://sciencedetroit.org

Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History-
The Museum of African American History or otherwise known as the MAAH was first started in 1965 by Dr. Wright first known as IAM or International Afro-American Museum. Over the next few decades the city of Detroit decided to give the museum land that was 5 times the museums space. Many members of the community worked together to raise the funding for the new building, and the ground was broken in 1985 just 20 years later.
Now the facility provided educational classes, exhibits, and motivational workshops for all who wish to learn about African American history. To learn more on this great place of history visit www.maah-detroit.org
