Sproutside at the Flint Children's Museum

To inspire a love for learning and awaken imagination through exploration and hands on play.

Alyssum flowers are blossoming outside our greenhouse. These pretty little flowers are food for caterpillars.

The day lilies throughout the museum gardens are blooming, too. Did you know that these plants are edible? The flower petals are crunchy like lettuce when eaten raw, but you can also find recipes for cooking the flowers. You can even make “pickles” from them!
