This place is a Gem! A very good opportunity to know the history of the Kelloggs brothers and the history of the Adventist movement (dated from 1840s). It Would be impossible to separate the JH Kellogg's history and the Adventist history. At this place you can find many inventions of the Dr. Kellogg's That revolutionized the way to promote health...

We were pleasantly surprised to find the Historic Adventist Village. Learning about Dr. Kellogg & being hands on with his inventions was incredible. Very informative tour guide took us to the entire village & we got to tour homes, school & meeting halls (or churches). Great way for children to learn by doing things the way they did in the...

I was born in Battle Creek but been gone for many years. We used to tour the Post and Kellogg plants but that is no longer possible. I remembered from those days about the cereal being invented due to health research like Postum being a substitute for coffee. I knew there was a religious connection but didn't know about 7th...

My husband thought this was going to be about cereal no matter how many times I told him it wasn't. When we got there, we only had limited time as we were just passing through. They wanted us to take the tour of the village. We got through three houses in an hour and a half before we finally said... More

A fascinating collection of Dr Kellogg's inventions. A very strange yet creative individual who tried to help society at that time improve their health and outlook on eating properly.

The Dr. John Harvey Kellogg Discovery Center was a wonderful and quirky part of our stay in Battle Creek. We were really just passing through Michigan but have always been intrigued by the movie "The Road to Wellville" which features the health farm of Dr. John Harvey Kellog, so we needed to check this place out. Admission was a donation.... More

We had a great time here. We started off with some cutesy but informative videos. A tour of the center followed. My favorite part was that we could actually use many of Dr. Kellogg's machines - very fun. We then got a tour of the historic Adventist village. Our tour guide for this part, Jason, was very knowledgeable and entertaining.... More
