The public will get its first chance to check out the new Michigan Science Center Saturday during Detroit's Noel Night.

The night brings together more than 60 institutions in the city that open their doors for free and share activities.

Information: 40th annual Noel Night

The building, formerly the Detroit Science Center, was shuttered last year amid financial troubles.

But it's getting ready to reopen its door permanently after the building was bought and donations came in. And, they're even hiring.

The application information is on their site:

A press conference is scheduled for Dec. 4 to announce when the center will open for good.
