Field Trips

mmcm field tripsA trip to the MMCM will have students eager to explore, learn and create in an environment dedicated to supporting your teaching with hands-on experiences. Each of the MMCM exhibit galleries has been tied directly to the Michigan Department of Education Curriculum and National Early Learning standards. We offer a special rate for a group or classroom visits. Our friendly receptionists will be happy to provide ideas for your visit, answer questions, and accommodate your needs.

The MMCM is open for field trips Tuesday – Friday and Saturday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, and if necessary, the Museum will open at 9:00 am for your group. The receptionists will assist you in choosing a date and time for your visit that is most likely to result in a great experience for your students! Call 989-399-6626 or email
