This is our last post in this series about natural learning, but don’t worry I will continue to share more places as we explore them. There are so many places yet for us to discover.
*I am posting early because Christmas is this Sunday and I want you to be unplugged and spending time with family instead of connecting with us. However, I don’t want you missing our latest blog.
Now let’s get to it…
Today’s post is all about the Grand Rapids Public Museum. The GRPM is also located in Grand Rapids near the Fredrick Meijer Garden and Sculpture Parks. (Check out our last post on Fredrick Meijer Gardens here).
There are SO many reasons why we love this museum. The museum not only contains historical information through their exhibits, but it also has a planetarium AND a Merry-Go-Round. Honestly, the Merry-Go-Round is the kids favorite part everytime we go they have to ride it.
The GRPM really begins learning to life through their exhibits. They have a nature room, a historical replica of old Grand Rapids, wood working area that you can watch furniture actually being made, and so many more.
The Grand Rapids Public Museum is a wonderful place to support your child’s natural learning. There’s a wide range of exhibits, so there is bound to be one that everyone finds interesting.
Live in the GR area and plan on making multiple visits, then consider getting a membership. We are currently members to the GRPM and there are many perks to our membership. We truly love the GRPM.
