      Museum invites kids to play, learn and have fun

      The U.P. Children's Museum in Marquette invited kids and their parents to come and play free of charge.

      The museum's free day is only offered once a year. The U.P. Children's Museum's goal is to give kids and their families a place to learn, play and have fun.

      Usually a large number of children come to the event, but with Sunday's extreme winter weather, the numbers were slightly down.

      The kids that were in attendance took advantage of the extra play time.

      "We went and saw the turtles and then we went and did hair and now we're here. We just got up and played I guess," said Bria Larson.

      The museum said the animal displays seem to be the most popular among kids.
