The Mid-Michigan Children’s Museum in Saginaw officially unveils two new galleries, Flutter Field and Tinker Track, according to marketing coordinator Nathan Yax.

The galleries are expected to be unveiled to the public during the opening ceremony from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, October 28. There will be light refreshments for guests to enjoy while they explore the galleries.

Tinker Track is a space kids can build as big as they can dream of. With connectable pipes and fittings, they can create anything from chairs and scooters to anything they imagine. Around the worktable is a running track they can ride on their creation or a balance bike. To learn and develop fine motor skills, there are wall mounted wheels with spare parts that they can change.

Flutter Field is a makeover of the museum’s outdoor garden. MMCM is a registered monarch butterfly crossing station, and it embraces that status by bringing life and color to the entrance to the museum. Composed of a large steel and wooden structure, Flutter Field contains many different plants that will make monarch butterflies feel at home. With revitalized landscaping that includes rock and stepping stones, the gallery will welcome you to the museum with “open wings,” according to a press release.

For hours and cost of admission, visit here. MMCM is located at 315 W. Genesee Ave. in Saginaw and is close to I-675, restaurants and other fun places to visit. Parking is free.
