The Marquette Regional History Center is making the most of their popular bus tours with a new tour for kids.
They call it the Magic Bus Tour and they're hoping to entertain and educate kids at the same time. The tour will feature role playing historical characters, special activities and surprise stops. The History Center hopes the interactive tour will make learning more fun.
"We work with kids all the time here at the History Center, and we know that a lot of them would be interested in local history, but we have to make it lighthearted and we have to make sure that there's something that grabs their attention," says Betsy Rutz of the History Center. "Kids get to get on the bus and meet characters from Marquette and do activities, there's going to be a lot of surprises on this tour."
The Magic Bus Tour is Wednesday August 20 at 1 p.m. The cost is $15, and the tour lasts about 90 minutes.
