Planning for a Safe Return

Masks are Currently Required Inside Midland Center

As we welcome back patrons for our 50th Anniversary Celebration Season, we are all doing our part to create a safe environment for everyone in the Center. As a conservative health measure, we intend to continue to require masks indoors until community vaccination rates increase and/or there is a reduction in the prevalence of highly transmissible COVID variants.

STEM & History Exhibits

The Hall of Ideas and the upper floors of the Alden B. Dow Museum of Science & Art continue to remain closed due to flood damage to our facility, we are bringing interactive and hands-on STEM & History Exhibits to the Lounge. Join us for one of the exhibits below:

FRI 12 - 4 PM, SAT 10 AM - 2 PM and SUN 12 - 4 PM
$3 per person and FREE for Museum Members

A Victorian Home Holiday

DEC 3, 2021 - JAN 9, 2022

Walk with us, room by room, through our re-creation of a traditional Victorian holiday home, model train display, and historic village scenes all in our new exhibit space. Celebrate the holidays with old fashioned parlor games, surrounded by live greenery, festive music and authentic Victorian furnishings brought over from the historic Bradley Home. We invite you to share your holiday traditions, create new ones, and enjoy the nostalgia of the Victorian era.
