GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) Learning isn’t confined to the classroom. Kids can have a blast and learn at the same time at the Grand Rapids Children’s Museum.

The museum has a fun exhibit where kids learn while having fun. “Little Grand Rapids” features a mural with iconic images of Grand Rapids including Calder Plaza and the carousel at the Grand Rapids Public Museum. Kids can “drive” into the Fox Motor auto service center, check a book out from the mini Grand Rapids Public Library, count cash and make transactions at the little Chemical Bank, cook up some food at Little Bistro Bella Vita, and stock up on groceries at the mini Meijer grocery store.

Along with Little Grand Rapids, the museum has brought back some favorites like the “Kidstruction Zone,” where they can work on pint-sized building and repair projects, “To the Rescue,” which teaches fire safety, and “Just Fort Fun,” where kids put together their own creative structures with blankets, pillows, and chairs.

September is Art Month at the Grand Rapids Children’s Museum. Watch for special programs daily through ArtPrize.
