The Michigan Firehouse Museum & Education Center Presents

Kids stuck inside without much to do? Bring them to the Michigan Firehouse Museum to beat the wintertime blues.

Recommended for kids ages 8 and up, these hands-on workshops will introduce children to the hobby of model making, inspire creativity and introduce kids to the science of steam power and we will throw in a little firefighting history too.

All workshops will be held at the Michigan Firehouse Museum on Saturday mornings from 10:30 to 11:30 am. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
