Gailreed had this to say in a 5-star review on tripadvisor.com,

There is a lot for children to do at Kids 'N" Stuff from playing in the water to dressing up and acting in their own plays. Kids always feel happy here where there is just enough variety to keep their imaginations active.

This is the best burrito I've ever had!  Hands down no one can beat it!  Free chips and salsa. Tacos are great too!  If you like Mexican food, you'll love Lopez!!

#3.  Gardner House Museum

This cool/haunting home has a long history according to the Albion Historic Society,

The Gardner House was built around 1875 by an Albion hardware merchant, Augustus P. Gardner, who came to Michigan from New York in 1837 as a young man. He lived in this Victorian brick house until his death in 1905.

#2.  Mann House

This 5-star yelp review praised the Mann House tour,

We participated in a tour of the Mann House with a group of friends and found it to be very interesting for a variety of ages. Our group of 16 included ages 5-60. Our tour guide, AJ, was very knowledgeable about the house and all of its contents. The kids (and adults) enjoyed rolling hoops and playing croquet. This hidden gem is a must see in Concord for anyone in the area or willing to make a pleasant drive to experience Victorian era history in Michigan.
