Exploring sculpture through storytelling

Meijer Gardens is bursting with summer activities for the kids, including the popular Kids’ Tram Tour, where children can explore and become inspired by our very own version of Beauty and the Beast!

“Beauty In the Beast, a Kids’ Tram Tour of the Sculpture Park” is an imaginative and fun way to learn about our sculpture park. The story brings to life a character named Beast, a personified sculpture by Lynn Chadwick featured in our permanent collection. During this interactive tour, kids will learn why Beast is sad and how the other sculptures try to help him. Starting in the Children’s Garden, children and their parents will journey with the Beast sculpture through the rest of park and “talk” to the other sculptures as they try to help Beast.

More than just a tram ride, this interactive experience will have children exploring the sculpture park and learning while they have fun. Sing, act, and dance to help make Beast happy and learn the importance of “just being you!” Parents and children alike will love this engaging tour with its fun activities and upbeat message about self-esteem.

Now through August 27, you and your little ones can enjoy this engaging experience every Monday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Tours are at 10:30 am, 11:30 am, and 1:30 pm, and cost $3 for adults and $1 for kids.
