Generous donors include: Altrusa International, Chemical Bank, Dow Corning Donor Advised Fund, FirstMerit, James R. and Anita Horne Jenkins Family Foundation, and S. C. Johnson & Son, Inc. MMCM guests will discover 10 interactive, Play and Learn galleries where children use their curiosity and creativity to learn about the world.
