In collaboration with Hagerty, the National Cherry Festival and the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians, the Great Lakes Children’s Museum is excited to unveil the new Life Cycle of a Cherry exhibit on Monday, July 15th from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m.
Kids, bring your families and join us for some cherry-themed FUN! The exhibit includes an underground tunnel beneath an orchard, a mockup of a 1950’s era farm truck, a road-side fruit stand, a flip wall depicting different seasons in a cherry tree’s growth, a comparison between the anatomy of a tree and a child’s body, plus a bird’s eye view over a cherry orchard where children can walk!
Executive Director Mike Long says, “The trustees of the Museum have been designing this exhibit for several years, and we are all extremely proud of how it’s turned out. We can’t thank the GTB, Hagerty and the National Cherry Festival enough for their generous investments in Hands-On Learning for our region. Please come check it out!”
