The third oldest children's museum in the US. Admission is free.
2009 Budget Problems
The museum has a $980,000 annual operating budget. $450,000 of that comes from federal Title I money provided by Detroit Public Schools. Robert Bobb, the DPS Emergency Financial Manager, has cut that portion from the budget, which means the museum may close bu August 2009.
The museum is currently free, but admissions charges are being considered.
