Ever wondered what it feels like to run out of the tunnel onto the field of the Big House? Standing on the sideline in the coach’s spot? Taking a selfie in the end zone? Now you can. Because we have the keys to the Big House! Come and throw a touchdown pass or kick a field goal, take your photo on the 50-yard line. You’ll also visit the Michigan locker room and experience the Jack Roth Stadium Club. In addition, we will tour the Crisler Center, home to UM basketball and women’s gymnastics.
Take a tour of our solar system, discussing planets, asteroids, motions, and more! We’ll zoom in to each planet in detail, enjoying breathtaking visualizations. Returning to Earth, we explore the night sky for any visible planets. This tour takes place at the planetarium located inside the UM Natural History Museum.
Don’t just expect a bunch of old bones. Embedded among the labs at U-M’s new Biological Sciences Building, the museum doesn’t just preserve the past; it also shows off the latest in scientific research with interactive exhibits!
