Where A Sense of Wonder is Cultivated


For more than 50 years, Midland Center for the Arts has been a regional destination for immersive exploration, historical research, artistic expression and scientific discovery; and now, the Center invites the community to imagine and build an art and STEM Center filled with endless possibilities for learning, creativity and connection.

Cutting-Edge Art & STEM Museum

A restored, refreshed and more open museum for scientific discovery and artistic expression. The Hall of Idea’s iconic architectural rings in the Alden B. Dow Museum will be more visible, reestablishing the museum’s unique and powerful center.

Exhibit spaces will expand, including a fully renovated lower level for additional exploration, providing a total of five floors of science and art exhibition space. With cutting-edge technology and fully interactive exhibits, the new museum will envision the Michigan of tomorrow.
