The MMCM is proud to announce the installation of a new exhibit…Amazing Airways! Sponsored by the Rollin M. Gerstacker Foundation, Team One Credit Union, the Consumers Energy Foundation and the Saginaw Community Foundation, this complex pathway propels lightweight objects on air currents through clear tubes. Children can investigate the power of moving air and pneumatics, and gain knowledge about the importance and power of air. In addition, children will discover familiar links between air and water.
The MMCM is located at 315 West Genesee Avenue in Saginaw. In addition to the nine regional themed galleries, the MMCM has classrooms, birthday party rooms, and a gift shop. The MMCM places priority on play and learning, teamwork, creativity and curiosity for children from birth to 12 years of age.
